A nice easy trick to this problem, is to notice that the area of the equilateral triangles is the same as the area of the hexagon. So you just have to find one to find the total area. The area of the hexagon is \[A={1 \over 2}ap\]where a is the apothem and p is the perimeter. We know the apothem to be \(2\sqrt3\) and the perimeter to be \(6\cdot4=24\) So the area of the hexagon is\[{1 \over 2}48\sqrt3 ={24\sqrt3}\]Therefore, the total area is\[2\cdot(24\sqrt3)=48\sqrt3\]
Wait, is the height of the triangle 3? Was I misreading the diagram?

But, that's not an answer. D: However, 24 (sqrt)3 ^2 is. WOuld that be it?
The height of the triangle is 3. Yes.
If the height of the triangle is 3, then the area of each triangle is \[{1\over2}\cdot3\cdot4=6\]So then the answer should be \[24\sqrt3+6\cdot6=24\sqrt3+36\]
There are 6 triangles, so that's why I multiplied the 6 by 6.
That is a possible answer. :D
Is that answer squared?
No. That's the entire answer. \[24\sqrt3+36 \;\;\;\text{cm}^2\]
Oh, sweet. :D Thanks man!
You're welcome.
