The **Area of Hexagon** calculator (**A _{hex}= ^{3}/_{2} • √3 • s^{2} **) computes the area of a regular Hexagon. A regular hexagon

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose the preferred units and enter the following:

- (
**s**) This is the Length of one side of the hexagon

**Area of the Hexagon:** The calculator returns the area in square meters. However, this can be automatically converted to other area units via the pull-down menu.

A regular hexagon is a six sided polygon where all of the sides are the same length (**s**). See the diagram. The formula for the area of a hexagon is:

**A= ^{3}/_{2} • √3 • s^{2} **

where:

- A is the area of the hexagon
- s is the length of one side of the regular hexagon

Hexagons appear in mathematics and in nature (e.g. honey comb of honey bees). The volcanic columns at the Giant's Causeway in North Ireland have regular shapes including regular hexagons.

Hexagons appear in mathematics and in nature (e.g. honey comb of honey bees). The volcanic columns at the Giant's Causeway in North Ireland have regular shapes including regular hexagons.

Using this equation and the fact that the shoe in the picture is approximately 12" long and that the side of the hexagon is approximately the length of the shoe, the AREA of these regular hexagons is 2.5 ft^{2}.
