Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Area for a regular hexagon is: A= 1/2 (6sh) A=.5 x6 x 12 x sqrt 108=374.123 sq ft

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1360/6 = 60 degrees for central angles then and an outer side at 12; law of cosines modified will give us lengths of sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1144 = 2s^2 (1  cos(60)) 144/ (1  cos(60)) = 2s^2 144/ (1  cos(60))  = s^2 2 s = sqrt(all that) lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.112^2 = s^2 + s^2  2ss cos(60) 144 = 2s^2  2s^2 cos(60) 144 = 2s^2(1  cos(60)) 144  = 2s^2 (12cos(60)) 72  = s^2 (12cos(60)) 72 sqrt[  ] = s (12cos(60))
