Area of a Hexagon

  • Last Updated : 07 Nov, 2021

A hexagon is a 6-sided, 2-dimensional geometric figure. The total of the internal angles of any hexagon is 720°. A regular hexagon has 6 rotational symmetries and 6 reflection symmetries. All internal angles are 120 degrees. 
 

Area of Hexagon

Attention reader! All those who say programming isn't for kids, just haven't met the right mentors yet. Join the  Demo Class for First Step to Coding Coursespecifically designed for students of class 8 to 12. 

The students will get to learn more about the world of programming in these free classes which will definitely help them in making a wise career choice in the future.

Examples : 
 



Input: 4
Output: 41.5692

Input: 6
Output: 93.5307

 

 

Number of vertices: 6 
Number of edges: 6 
Internal angle: 120° 
Area = (3 √3(n)2 ) / 2

How does the formula work? There are mainly 6 equilateral triangles of side n and area of an equilateral triangle is (sqrt(3)/4) * n * n. Since in hexagon, there are total 6 equilateral triangles with side n, are of the hexagon becomes (3*sqrt(3)/2) * n * n
 

C++




// CPP program to find 
// area of a Hexagon
#include <iostream>
#include <math.h>
using namespace std;
  
// function for calculating
// area of the hexagon.
double hexagonArea(double s)
{
    return ((3 * sqrt(3) * 
            (s * s)) / 2);     
}
  
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    // Length of a side 
    double s = 4; 
    cout << "Area : "
         << hexagonArea(s);
    return 0;
}

Java




class GFG 
    // Create a function for calculating
    // the area of the hexagon.
    public static double hexagonArea(double s) 
    {
        return ((3 * Math.sqrt(3) * 
                (s * s)) / 2);
    
          
    // Driver Code
    public static void main(String[] args) 
    {     
        // Length of a side
        double s = 4;      
        System.out.print("Area: "
                          hexagonArea(s) );
    }
}
