Perimeter of Hexagon Formula

 In geometry, a hexagon is said to the polygon which has six equal sides and six edges. Hexa comes from Greek word “Hex” meaning “six” in English and “gonia” meaning angles. Naturally, the perimeter of the hexagon will be 6 multiplied by one side of the hexagon. Each internal angle of the hexagon is $120^{\circ}$.
