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
