No, that is not correct.

The area of a hexagon with a perimeter of 12 units is about 10.4 units2

9762

Area of circle = 225 cm2 implies radius = 8.46 cm (approx) Therefore, apothem of hexagon = 8.46 cm then side of hexagon = apothem*2/sqrt(3) = 9.77 cm (approx) and so perimeter = 6*side = 58.63 cm

If the hexagon has side length s, then the apothem is sqrt(3) * s / 2.

Perimeter = 2*Area/Apothem.

If it is a regular 6 sided hexagon then its perimeter is 6 times 12 = 72 inches

For a regular hexagon, half the side length can be calculated from the apothem via trigonometry: half_side_length = apothem x tan 30° Then: area = apothem x 1/2 x perimeter = apothem x 1/2 x side_length x 6 = apothem x half_side_length x 6 = 24 in x (24 in x tan 30°) x 6 ≈ 1995 sq in

12 x 5 x 20 ie 1200squnits. I'm not convinced you can have such a hexagon, if the side is 10 then shouldn't the apothem have to be 5 root 3?

Given the perimeter of a regular hexagon, it is better to use the side length: 6 inches, rather than the apothem of 5.2 inches because the latter is he rounded value of 3*sqrt(3) which is 5.196152... rather than 5.2. Based on the length of the sides, the area is approx 93.53 sq inches. [The apothem would have given 93.67 sq inches.]
