    I started this knowing hexagon's angles total 720 degrees

    So each individual angle is 120 degrees

    Angle 3 is half of one of the hexagons corners, so it is 60 degrees

    Angle 3 is part of a right triangle, and with it being 60 degrees....

    We have a 30-60-90 triangle (180 degrees in a triangle)

    In other words, angle 2 is 30 degrees.

    Angle 2 is half of the top angle in the triangle highlighted in black

    So the angle at the top of the black traingle is 60 degrees

    Hexagons are consistent, so all of its angles around the center are the same size

    Angle 1 is 60 degrees

    So therefore angle 1 equals to 60 degrees?
