Example Question #11 : How To Find The Perimeter Of A Hexagon

Find the perimeter of the regular hexagon.

2

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

When all the opposite sides of a regular hexagon are connected, you should notice that six congruent equilateral triangles are created:

13

Thus, the diagonal of the hexagon is twice the length of a side.

Plug in the given diagonal to find the length of a side.

Now, recall how to find the perimeter of a regular hexagon:

Plug in the side length to find the perimeter.
