    2.) You are planning to use a ceramic tile design in your new bathroom. The tiles are blue-and-white equilateral triangles. You decide to arrange the blue tiles in a hexagonal shape as shown. If the side of each tile measures 7 centimeters, what will be the exact area of each hexagonal shape? http://assets.openstudy.com/updates/attachments/516c60bfe4b02ec89c5b0a4e-jbluver-1366057178975-l.png My answer: |dw:1438367509485:dw|

    starting with the rhombus we have cos 60 = 6/x where x is the length of the sides of the rhombus so x = 6/cos60 to get the area of this triangle we use A=1/2.6.x.sin60 there are 4 triangles so we have area of rhombus = 4A

    with the second we have the area of one equilateral triangle = (1/2).7.7.sin60 so the area of the hexagon = 6 x area of each triangle
