 Question 109968: Each side of a regular hexagon has length 10. Find the area of the hexagon. (Hint: Divide the Hexagon into triangles) How many triangles do I divide the hexagon into and what do I do from there? Or just write out the equation to solve it. The answer in the answer key is 150 square roots of 3.Answer by josmiceli(9817)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!There are 6 equilateral triangles in a hexagon Each one is 1/6 of the area Area of a triangle = a b = 10 The height is the perpendicular line that bisects one of the 60 degree angles of the triangle. It divides the equilateral into two triangles with sides in the ratio : : In this case, the sides are :: answer
