Why are hexagons so common in nature?

It's one of the only shapes which tessellates perfectly (think tiles, if you tiled a wall with hexagons then there wouldn't be any gaps. Of the shapes which tessellate perfectly (triangle, square, hexagon) it has the smallest perimeter for its area i.e. a square of area 10cm^2 has a greater perimeter than that of a hexagon with an area of 10cm^2. So, if you were a bee trying to make a honeycomb then the hexagon is best because it would use least wax to make a certain area of comb (because of the perimeter/area ratio) and also not waste any space (because it tessellates without leaving any gaps). Hope that helps.

How do you found the area math?

The answer depends on the shape whose area is sought. For some simple shapes there are easy formulae. Then there are less simple shapes which can be broken down into simple shapes and their area is simply the sum of the components. However, in many cases, the best that you can do is to make approximate estimates.
