A regular hexagon has 6 parallel sides (3 pairs)
Hexagon = 6 sides
A regular hexagon has 3 pairs of parallel sides (6 sides).
A hexagon can have 0, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 parallel sides. A regular hexagon has 3 sets of parallel sides.
It can have 4 parallel sides, EX. /\/\ \ /
If the hexagon is regular, there are three sets.
An hexagon has 6 sides.
Every hexagon has six sides. That is the definition of "hexagon".If it did not have six sides, then it would not be a 'hexagon', andwe would not be having this discussion.
There are 3 sets of parallel sides in a hexagon.
A hexagon can have 0, 1, 2 or 3 pairs of parallel sides. A regular hexagon has 3 pairs of parallel sides. A hexagon can also have 2 sets of 3 parallel sides! If you are allowed to count sides in more than one pair, this would be 6 pairs of parallel sides!
a pentagon has 5 sides total, and no parallel sides. A hexagon has 6 sides, so it has 3 parallel sides. any shape with an odd number of equal sides has 0 parallel sides, no matter how many sides it has. every shape with an even number of equal sides will have the # of sides divided by 2 (#/2) of parallel sides.
