It is a six-sided polygon which is different from irregular hexagon as its all six edges and angles are equal. So, it consists of 6 symmetrical lines and rotational symmetry with order – 6.
Area Of Regular Hexagon Formula
We can calculate the area of a hexagon using hexagon formula based on how have you divide the hexagon. For example, you can divide it into 6 equilateral triangles, two triangles, and one rectangle.
Let’s discuss how to find the Area of hexagon:
Method 1: If we divide it into 6 parts:
Area of an equilateral triangle = √3/4 x L x L
|Area of hexagon = 6 x√3/4 x L x L = 3(√3/2)L2|
Area of Hexagon = 1/2(P)(a)
Where P is the perimeter and a is the apothem of Hexagon
Surface area of Regular Hexagon Formula Question & Answer
Q 1: Calculate the area of a regular hexagon whose side is 7 cm.
Area of a hexagon equation is A = (3√3 )/2 x L2
Here, side l = 7 cm
Put the value L = 7cm.
Area = 3 x (1.732/2) x 7 x 7
= 2.598 x 49
