The perimeter of a hexagon is 300 units. One side of the hexagon is 45 units long and

the lengths of the other sides are in the ratio 1:2:3:4:5. Find the positive difference

between the lengths of the longest and shortest sides.

The length of one side is 45, so the length of the others are 255. The sum of the ratios add up to 15, so divide 255/15 to get 17. Multiply the number (5) one to get the largest side to be 85 units, and multiply 17 times (1) to get the smallest is 17 units. 85-17 is 68!
