Area of hexagon with given diagonal length
• Last Updated : 10 Mar, 2021

You are given the length of the diagonal of a hexagon, d. Your task is to find the area of that hexagon.
Examples:

Input :   5
Output :   Area of Hexagon: 16.238

Input : 10
Output : Area of Hexagon: 64.9519

Hexagon
Hexagon is a regular polygon having six equal sides and all equal angles. The interior angles of Hexagon are of 120 degrees each and the sum of all angles of a Hexagon is 720 degrees. Let d be the diagonal of Hexagon, then the formula to find the area of Hexagon given by
Area = How does above formula work?
We know that area of hexagon with side length a = (3 √3(a)2 ) / 2. Since all sides are of same size and angle is 120 degree, d = 2a or a = d/2. After putting this value, we get area as (3 √3(d)2 ) / 8.
Below is the implementation .

## C++

 // C++ program to find the area of Hexagon with given diagonal#include using namespace std; // Function to calculate areafloat hexagonArea(float d){    // Formula to find area    return (3 * sqrt(3) * pow(d, 2)) / 8;} // Mainint main(){    float d = 10;    cout << "Area of hexagon: " << hexagonArea(d);    return 0;}
