@hawkfalcon I clearly have an answer down, but I'm just double checking to see if it's correct. If you don't like it, please don't comment on my stuff.

Well each angle of a hexagon is 120 degrees, so you subtract that from 180 and divide by two. That should help:)

So, 60 divided by 2?

@jim_thompson5910 I think it's 18, and hawk thinks it's 30. Help?

I gave you the logic behind my reasoning, and explained how to do it:O

Why do you think it is 18?

That exterior angle is 360/6 = 60 degrees

So the interior angle (which is supplementary to it) is 180 - 60 = 120 degrees

So if x is that unknown angle you want to find, then
x+120+x = 180
2x+120 = 180
2x = 180-120
2x = 60
x = 60/2
x = 30

true, I'm just using x and doing it in an algebraic way

@hawkfalcon Yah, I just needed another opinion. Haha. You said "try that" which made me a bit uneasy.
