What I would do is divide it into triangles and find the area of those. If it's not to scale or somthing, find the formula online.

I hope this helped.

You don't need to find the forumula online.

Area of a triangle is 1/2 * base * perpendicular height

It depends what lengths or angles you are given as to how you go about doing this.

Are you talking about a regular hexagon? What info do you have?

Re: Area of hexagon

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Let's think about this for just a second. A hexagon is just composed of 6 equilateral triangles. Then the area of one of these triangles is just (1/2)s^{2}sin(60°) = (1/2)s^{2}(√(3)/2) = (1/4)s^{2}(√(3), where s is the side length of the hexagon. And since we have 6 of these triangles, then the total area is just 6* (1/4)s^{2}(√(3)=

(3√(3))/2*s^{2}
