The area of a given hexagon is equal to the area of an equilateral triangle whose perimeter is 36 inches. Find the length of a side of the regular hexagon.Click once to select an item at the bottom of the problem.

A hexagon has 6 sides. The area of a regular hexagon that has a perimeter of 60 cm is 259.81 cm squared.

How to do find hexagon

Side length is about 58cm and the perimeter is about 348cm

for perimeter add up the lengths of the six sides and for area divide the hexagon into six equilateral triangle, find the area of one, and multiply the product by six

(3x2 √3) / 2 Where x is the length of a side, given that the hexagon is a regular hexagon. However, if the hexagon is is not regular, you will have to find the area of the two trapeziums within the hexagon, find the area of them, and add them together.

If you are given the width and the perimeter, then figure out what the length is then calculate the area... hope this helps :)

You cannot.

Perimeter = 4*Side so that Side = Perimeter/4 Area of a rhombus = Side * Altitude so Altitude = Area/Side = Area/(Perimeter/4) = 4*Area/Perimeter

Unless the area is a regular polygon (or a circle) you cannot.

The side of a regular hexagon is 4.8 cm. Find its perimeter.

You cannot. For a given area, an equilateral triangle will have the smallest perimeter but that perimeter can be increased - without limit - without increasing the area.

Measure and add the lengths together.

The answer depends on the information available.

If you are given the area you will have to think what do you times with the number you have to get it.

The surface area of a hexagon is the same as its area. You will normally need to split the hexagon into triangles, find their area and sum these.

There is nothing in the question that allows you to assume that the hexagon is regular and so there is are no simple formulae. You will need to divide up the hexagon into simpler shapes. For example, pick any point inside the hexagon and join it to all the vertices. You will get six triangles. Calculate the area of each triangle and then and these areas together. Similarly, measure each side of the hexagon and add them together to get the perimeter.

If the area is a square, 1/4 of the perimeter is the length of one side. That length squared is the area. The area will be the product of two numbers whose sum is half the perimeter.

It depends on the shape.

Multiply length by width

To find area given perimeter, rename perimeter to circumference and solve with these formulas: Circumference = 2πr (or 2 * π * r) Area = πr^2 (or π * r * r) With these the area can be found from circumference(or perimeter) as follows: A = π(C / 2π)^2 Now, to find the perimeter given the area; We use A = πr^2 and rearrange then solve: r = √(A / π) So, the circumference would be 2πr = 2π√(A / π)

No, that is not correct.

If 'R' is the radius of the circle, then-- area of the circle is [ pi R2]-- perimeter of the circle is [ 2 pi R ]
