# Area of a Hexagon Formulas & Calculator

The area of a hexagon can be calculated using the following formula: if you know the perimeter and the apothem.

## Formula Knowing the Perimeter and the Apothem

If you know the length of the perimeter in a hexagon and the apothem, you can calculate its area using the following formula:

### Where:

$$p = "perimeter value"$$

$$a = "apothem: distance from the center to the closest point in the figure"$$

## Hexagon Definition

It is a geometric figure with 6 sides, all the sides have equal length. Also an hexagon has all the same angles. all regular hexagons look the same.

An irregular hexagon can have vitually infinite posibles shapes, Despite this all have 6 sides.

## Apothem Definition

The apothem it´s the distance between the center of the geometric figure and the closest point in the figure to the center.

## Area Definition

It is the space of the internal surface in a figure, it is limited for the perimeter. Also, the area can be calculated in a plane of two dimensions.

## Formula Definition

It is a representation of a rule or a general principle using letters. *(***Algebra**, A. Baldor)

When describing formulas in plural, it is also valid to say "formulae".
