A regular hexagon has a perimeter of p (in length units) and an area of A (in square units). If A=3/2p then find the side length of the hexagon.

You can't really tell the exact sidelength or an integer for this problem, but you can tell what the sudelength is in terms of the area or perimeter. 

 

First off, we know that the perimeter of a regular hexagon is 6 times the sidelength, meaning the area is \(3/2 * 6 = 9 \) times the area. 

 

So the sidelenghth of the hexagon is 1/9 the area and 1/6 the perimeter!

 

I hope I answered your question!

 

Thanks!
