you may do 1 line and to pentagons so if you do that you may a hexagon with to make a triangleand a pentagon to make a hexagon Love Amber Marie Tobin

A Cut the legs off of this A and you have a triangle, which is a polygon. Triangle Heptagon Quadrilateral Pentagon Hexagon Octagon Decagon Nonagon that is all of the polygons

A hexagon is a six-sided figure. Cut an equilateral triangle out of a piece of paper. Chop off little equilateral triangles at each tip of the triangle. What you have is a hexagonal piece of paper. Draw around it.

Break it down. Hexa means six so it has six sides. And tri means three so it has three sides. Draw it and you will see. Heres a hint. You'll have two when you finish

Cut in half to make two trapazoids and find the area of one of the trapazoids. Don't forget to multiply the answers by two becasue you only found the area of half of the hexagon. If you want to get really tricky or forget the trapazoid formula then cut in in sixths and find the area of a triangle. Then multiply the answer by six.

The answer depends on how you cut it.Even with a single straight cut you can get:a triangle and a heptagon,a triangle and a hexagon,a triangle and a pentagon,a quadrilateral and a hexagon,a quadrilateral and a pentagon,two quadrilaterals (trapezium),two pentagons.

a square ----------- Assuming it's a regular hexagon, it can be one of two shapes depending on whether you cut it in half on a side or on a vertex. On a side, it is an irregular pentagon. On a vertex, it is a trapezoid (quadrilateral).

If divided by a vertex-to-vertex line, it is an isosceles trapezium. If divided by a line from one side to the opposite side, it will make an irregular pentagon.

you can make a working model of any polygons. first,draw any polygons (triangle,pentagon,hexagon etc....)and also draw its interior angles and exterior angles (note the polygons sum of the angles). then cut its exterior angles.then bring the all exterior angles(after the cut) togather.now you can make a circle. its means , the sum of the exteriorangles of any polygon =sum of the angles of a circle (360 degree = 360 degree)

to make an quilateral hexagon (all the angles identical) each internal angle should be 108 degrees.

Well basically yeah it kinda is. A hexagon is A six sided figure. We know that many geometric buildings contains triangles. When a hexagon is cut into two it is a trapezoid. when that is cut into two in is a triangle. a hexagon is basically a lot of triangles stuck together. We all know that i triangle can't be stronger than two or more. so what do you think is stronger, a triangle or a hexagon. * * * * * The answer will depend on what you mean by "strongest" but the above answer is just a load of garbage! Any polygon with four or more sides is not rigid. It can be skewed in the same way that a square can be flexed so that it becomes a rhombus. The only rigid polygon is a triangle. That is one reason why triangles are used in structures and also why rectangles (or similar shapes) need to be cross-braced.

If you bisect a regular hexagon (cut in half from one vertex to the opposite vertex) the shape you get is a trapezoid. If you bisect the hexagon from the midpoint of one side to the midpoint of the opposite side, then the shape you would is a pentagon, similar looking to home plate in baseball.
