Best Answer

For a 6 sided shape to be a hexagon, it must (in addition to having 6 sides) be a polygon. To be a polygon, it must be a closed shape (no unlinked lines) and it must be convex (All angles are pointed towards the outside, rather than inwards).

If it matches all of these criteria, then it is indeed a hexagon.

There are many 6 sided shapes that are not hexagons, including cubes.

Q: Are all 6 sided shapes called hexagons?

no but it starts with hex because it means six

All 7 sided shapes are called heptagons.

There are infinitely many of them and they are collectively known as polygons.

They are called Polygons.If all the sides are straight lines, then a polygon.

Squares are regular all the time. Diamonds, hexagons and pentagons are sometimes regular.
