# Area of hexagon with given diagonal length

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

**Examples:**

Input :5Output :Area of Hexagon: 16.238Input :10Output :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 .
