# Properties of Hexagon

We will study the properties of a Hexagon in this article. For understanding the properties of a Hexagon, let’s first study What is a regular Hexagon.

## What is Hexagon?

A closed figure which is two-dimensional and is made up of straight lines is called a polygon. A polygon is a geometric figure. In this type of geometric figures, if one has 6 sides, it is called a Hexagon.

If these six sides have the same lengths and all the angles formed by these lines are equal, then it is known as Regular Hexagon. In a hexagon, all sides are congruent.

## Table of Properties of Hexagon

 S.No Topics Properties 1. Sides A Hexagon has six sides. 2. Angles A Hexagon has six angles. 3. Diagonals There is a total of 9 diagonals in a hexagon. 4. Interior angles The sum of interior angles of a hexagon is 720 degrees. 5. A measure of the angle Each interior angle of a hexagon is of 120 degrees. 6. Exterior angles The sum of all the exterior angles is equal to 360 degrees. 7. The measure of the angles Each exterior angle of a hexagon is of 60 degrees. 8. Area The area of the hexagon is (1.5 √3) × s2 9. Triangles The hexagon is made up of 6 regular triangles.
