A regular hexagon A has the midpoints of its edges joined to form a smaller hexagon B. This process is repeated by joining the midpoints of the edges of the hexagon B to get a third hexagon C. What is the ratio of the area of hexagon C to the area of hexagon A?

Each smaller hexagon formed will have side length equal to 0.866(half times square root of 3)times the length of its previous hexagon

sorry for bad drawing, but could u get the side of smaller hex from that ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
it's fine.. i'll analyze it for a while

what was that d/2 ??
hartnn
  • hartnn
yes, d/2 or u asked , why was that d/2 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i meas WHAT is that d/2? where did you get it? sorry but i find solid mensuration and geometry hard ..
hartnn
  • hartnn
d is the side of smaller hexagon , so the length i have marked here will be d/2 |dw:1350381918942:dw|

ahh.. got it.. i was confused from that equation :D
hartnn
  • hartnn
so u will have ratio of sides, know how to find ratio of areas ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, i don't
hartnn
  • hartnn
(ratio of sides)^2 = ratio of areas ALWAYS.
anonymous
  • anonymous
owh.. so like the equation on how i got the corresponding sides of the 2 triangles? ok.. got it.. i'll just now solve for the sides of the hexagon C
hartnn
  • hartnn
yes, find the ratio of sides of hex A and hex C.

9/16 ?? ahm.. is it??
hartnn
  • hartnn
yes!
hartnn
  • hartnn
9/16 is ratio of areas
anonymous
  • anonymous
i thought i was wrong :D that problem is complicated for me. thanks for the help man! :))
