How to do find hexagon

(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.

Perimeter = 4*Side so that Side = Perimeter/4 Area of a rhombus = Side * Altitude so Altitude = Area/Side = Area/(Perimeter/4) = 4*Area/Perimeter

Unless the area is a regular polygon (or a circle) you cannot.

You cannot. For a given area, an equilateral triangle will have the smallest perimeter but that perimeter can be increased - without limit - without increasing the area.

If you are given the width and the perimeter, then figure out what the length is then calculate the area... hope this helps :)
