TopAny figure which has closed shape is known as Polygon except circular shapes. There are different meanings of word polygon. Polygon has two dimensional shapes. In a Polygon every ending Point is known as vertex of polygon. The exterior angle of a polygon must be 360 degree/n, where ‘n’ is the number of sides in a polygon.
Our question here is what polygon has 6 sides and 6 angles?
The polygon which has six sides and six angles is known as Hexagon.
Hexagon is a type of a polygon which has six sides and six angles. Some of the properties of hexagon are:
Interior angles – for finding the interior angles of a hexagon we use formula:
= (180n – 360)/ n,
where ‘n’ denote the side of a hexagon. When we solve this formula for finding the interior angles then we get the value of interior angle are 120 degree.
Exterior angles – A linear pair is formed with the exterior angles of a hexagon. Exterior angles of a hexagon are 60 degree.
Area – the area of a hexagon is approximately 2.598s2, where s is the length of a side.
Area = s2N,
Where‘s’ denotes the length of any one side,
‘N’ denotes the number of sides.
‘Tan’ is the Tangent function in the hexagon.
Diagonal – In a hexagon, nine diagonals are possible for all vertices of a hexagon. The formula for finding the diagonals in a hexagon is:
= ½ n (n – 3),
In a hexagon, four Triangles are possible and the formula for finding the triangles in a hexagon is:
= (n – 2),
And the sum of interior angles of a hexagon is 720 degree, the formula for finding the interior angles are:
= 180(n – 2),
And the area of hexagon is:
A = ½ .6s.h,
Where,‘s’ is the length and ‘h’ denotes the height of a hexagon.
