Regular Hexagon Formula

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 

Another Formula

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

Questions:

Q 1: Calculate the area of a regular hexagon whose side is 7 cm.

Solution:

Area of a hexagon equation is A = (33 )/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

=127.302 cm2
