1. What is the area of a regular hexagon with a side length of 6 yd? Round only your final answer to the nearest hundredth.

If you can help, I very much appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

Ahexagon

We have 6 equal triangles  each with a base of 6  and a height of 3√3

So

6 * base * height / 2   =

6 * 6 * ( 3√3 ) /  2

≈ 93.53 yd^2

A lot of times I have to double-check things like 8 + 3, just to make sure it's still 11..haha you never know when it might change up on you one of these days!! x)
