 Question 263346: I am stumped on this question and I am not sure how to figure out the perimeter. If I knew that number I could solve the problem. Thanks for your help. Consider a square and a regular hexagon (a six sided figure with sides of equal length). One side of the square is 7 feet longer than a side of the hexagon, and the two figures have the same perimeter. What are the lengths of the sides of each figure? I set it up as x= hexagon x+7= square x+x+7=? Click here to see answer by richwmiller(9144)
