A regular hexagon has a total side length of 12, find its area. (Solution please)

The formula for the area of a regular polygon is \[A = \frac12aP\]You have to find the apothem. Do you know how to do that?

Sorry, I really don't

Is there another way?

Well, this is the proper way to do this...to find the apothem of a regular hexagon, you have to know the 30-60-90 triangle ratios. |dw:1343526566013:dw| Therefore, the apothem is \(\sqrt{3}\). You already have the perimeter, so can you finish it up?

I get it, thanks
