it has seven sides and must look like a regular hexagon

Any regular shaped polygon has equal angles and equal sides

an irregular or regular shape. flat and no arcs. at least 3 sides a smiley face inside

It depends on the actual shape of that octagon. It CAN have two pairs of parallel sides. A regular octagon has 4 pairs of parallel sides.

yes No it is not. All the angles of a regular shape must be the same and that is not the case with a rhombus.

A regular heptagon is a polygon with seven equilateral sides. The shape must also be equiangular and convex.

It is impossible to have a six sided shape with right angles since the lines would never meet, therefore it would not create a shape. The most right angles you can have in a shape is four. A six sided shape is called a hexagon. There are Regular Hexagons, meaning all the sides and all the angles are equal. Any other Hexagon with unequal sides and angles and called Irregular Hexagons. Each side must be straight, and the sum of the angles equaling 720°.

The question does not state that it is a regular hexagon and so you may not assume that it is. Therefore, there is no simple formula because a hexagon can have very many shapes. One method would be to pick a point in the plane of the hexagon and join it to all the vertices. This divides up the hexagon into triangles. Their areas can be calculated using base and height, or three sides, or two sides and included angle - whichever you like. Finally the areas of the triangles must be combined to get the area of the hexagon.
