### Is a square like a hexagon?

You decide how "alike" they are. A square has four sides; a hexagon has six. In a square, all sides have the same length, all angles have the same measure. In a hexagon, this may or may not be the case.

### Is there such thing as an irregular hexagon with symmetry?

Yes, a regular hexagon has ALL sides the same length and ALL angles equal. If you flatten it somewhat (like the profile of a lens) then the sides may still have the same length but some angles will be larger than others if opposite angles are the same than there will be symmetry. (there are many other options to retain symmetry in a hexagon this is but one)

### What is the difference of regular and irregular shapes?

The difference between an irregular and regular is that a regular shape is the normal form of a hexagon or pentagon etc. A regular hexagon would have six sides all the same length and all the angles would be the same. An irregular shape is a shape in a different form of the normal form. Example, A irregular hexagon would still have six sides but the lengths may be different and the angles also may be different.

### How may edges does a hexagon have have?

A 6 sided hexagon has 6 sides but no edges

### How may perpendicular sides in a hexagon?

There need not be any.

### How many congruent sides does a hexagon have?

Every hexagon has six sides. That's what the "hex" in hexagon means. Every polygon comes in two flavors and the hexagon can be either one of them ... 'regular' or 'irregular'. If the hexagon is a regular one, then all six of its sides are congruent. If the hexagon is an irregular one, then 2, 3, 4, 5, or none of its sides may be congruent.

### How are parallelograms and rhombus' different?

Adjacent sides of a parallelogram may be of different length. In a rhombus all four sides must be of the same length.

### How do you find the sides of a hexagon?

You measure them. In some cases, you may know some other information about the hexagon, in that case you may be able to calculate them.

### How many equal sides does a irregular hexagon?

A regular polygon must have all sides (and angle) equal.An irregular polygon does not have to have all sides equal, but some may be equal.An irregular hexagon may have 2, 3, 4 or 5 equal sides.

6 of each.

### What are the characteristics of an isosceles triangle?

Two sides have the same length as each other. The other side may be shorter or longer in length than the other two sides.

### Does a rhombus have 2 parall sides and no perpendicular sides?

A rhomus has 2 parallel sides and all sides are the same length. It may or may not have perpendicular sides; if perpendicular it is a special case of a rhombus and is called a square
