Hexagons are twice as hard as trianglesThis problem came in ganesh's oral puzzles.
Let's say you cannot remember that there is a formula for this. Can Geogebra help? Yep! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #2 20111007 15:38:39
Re: Hexagons are twice as hard as trianglesNeat, thanks for that. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #3 20111007 23:46:43
