A hexagon is a polygon that has six sides and angles. Regular hexagons have six equal sides and angles and are composed of six equilateral triangles.
The Calculator helps calculating the area of A Regular Hexagon.
Since a regular hexagon is comprised of six equilateral triangles, the formula for finding the area of a hexagon is derived from the formula of finding the area of an equilateral triangle. The formula for finding the area of a hexagon is:
Area = (3 × √3 × s2)/ 2
where s is the length of a side of the regular hexagon.
If the the length of a side of the regular hexagon (s) equals 4, the area of the hexagon equals 41.57:
(3 × √3 × 42)/ 2 = 41.57
