A henhouse with a hexagon shape was easier to build than a circular one. Most nuts and bolt heads have a shape that is either a square or a hexagon.

A hexagon has six, a square has four.

Not if the hexagon is a regular hexagon with sides of the same length as the sides of the square.

A square has 4 side, a pentagon has 5, and a hexagon has 6.

No because a hexagon has 6 sides whereas a square has only 4 sides

Neither a square nor a hexagon are rigid so the question is misguided. Any square can be "squashed" into a rhombus and a hexagon into an irregular hexagon. The only rigid polygon is a triangle.

A square has 4 sides wheras an hexagon has 6 sides

yes it can if your hexagon is bigger

If the perimeter of the hexagon is 72, then each side of the hexagon is 72/6 = 12. Therefore, one side of the square is also 12, since the hexagon and the square share a side, so the area of the square is 12 x 12 = 144 cm.
