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.

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

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

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.

(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.

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

Add up all the sides to find your answer.

the formula to find the area of any prism is to find the area of the base (a regular hexagon, meaning that all sides and angles are the same) and multiply by the height of the prism. To find the area of a hexagon you multiply the apothem by the perimeter of the hexagon, and then divide that by 2. the apothem is a line from the center point to the center of any side, forming a right angle with a side, it doesn't matter which one. Once you find the area of the hexagon, multiply it with the height.

Area of hexagon= Area of original triangle/10

In general you cannot find the perimeter of any shape if only the area is given.
