First we assume it is a regular hexagon meaning all the angles are the same and the sides are the same length. Recalling that a regular hexagon can be broken up into 6 triangles, we find the area of the hexagon by finding the area of one triangle and multiply by six. (recall the area of triangle is Height x 1/2 Base ) You can also find the area of a hexagon using the formula Area==ap/2 where a is the apothem and p is the perimeter. But that just gives you the area of the 2 dimensional base, not the volume. To calculate the volume, multiply the area found above by the height of the hexagonal container.

Use the formula 1/2bh to find the area of a triangle side. Then multiply that by 6 because you have 6 sides on the base.

Hexagonal prisms cannot be regular. If you tried to make one it would end up being a hexagon since six equilateral triangles make a hexagon. Therefore, there is no surface area.
