\[A = (3\sqrt{3}*t ^{2})\div2\] Where t is the length of one side. In your case, you know the area but you don't know t. So you can solve for 't' and you get t = 4.3869 for the second hexagon, t = 8.7738 So plug this value of t in the original formaula and you get area as 199.99 Area is approx. 200
