Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, this is the proper way to do this...to find the apothem of a regular hexagon, you have to know the 306090 triangle ratios. dw:1343526566013:dw Therefore, the apothem is \(\sqrt{3}\). You already have the perimeter, so can you finish it up?
