    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?

    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?
