We will study the properties of a Hexagon in this article. To understand the properties of a Hexagon, let’s first study What is a regular Hexagon.
What is Hexagon?
A closed figure which is two-dimensional and made up of straight lines is called a polygon. A polygon is a geometric figure. In this type of geometric figure, if one has 6 sides, it is called a Hexagon.
If these six sides have the same lengths and all the angles formed by these lines are equal, then it is known as Regular Hexagon. In a hexagon, all sides are congruent.
Table of Properties of Hexagon
|1.||Sides||A Hexagon has six sides.|
|2.||Angles||A Hexagon has six angles.|
|3.||Diagonals||There is a total of 9 diagonals in a hexagon.|
|4.||Interior angles||The sum of interior angles of a hexagon is 720 degrees.|
|5.||A measure of the angle||Each interior angle of a hexagon is of 120 degrees.|
|6.||Exterior angles||The sum of all the exterior angles is equal to 360 degrees.|
|7.||The measure of the angles||Each exterior angle of a hexagon is of 60 degrees.|
|8.||Area||The area of the hexagon is (1.5 √3) × s2|
|9.||Triangles||The hexagon is made up of 6 regular triangles.|
