    you can make the 2 top angles equal 120 usinf your protractor then do same with the two middle ones. then you cut short the two sides - but would the two bottom angles be 120 ?

    yes - they have to be! - because a hexagon must have total of 720 degrees not all sides are different - but i assume thats ok.
