6 A Regular Hexagon has six sides of equal length, and 6 equal angles.

The 7-faced solid is called a "hexagonal pyramid."

They're referred to as hexagonal prisms. or a hexagonal pyramid.

The question does not state that it is a regular hexagon and so you may not assume that it is. Therefore, there is no simple formula because a hexagon can have very many shapes. One method would be to pick a point in the plane of the hexagon and join it to all the vertices. This divides up the hexagon into triangles. Their areas can be calculated using base and height, or three sides, or two sides and included angle - whichever you like. Finally the areas of the triangles must be combined to get the area of the hexagon.

Since each triangular face will have a base at an edge of the hexagon base, there will be 6 triangular faces and 1 hexagon at the base. Each triangle will have an edge at the base that it shares with the hexagon. Each triangle will have two other edges that it shares with the two adjacent triangles. We can thus get the number of edges by counting the number of triangles and then add the number of base edges - 6 + 6 = 12.
