Geometry problemIn hexagon ABCDEF, AB = DE = 2, BC = EF = 4, CD = FA = 6, and all the interior angles are equal. Find the area of hexagon ABCDEF. Batman shows Superman his new phone. Batman"Alfred, whats the temperature in London?" Alfred"Just a second, sir." Alfred turns on his iPhone."Siri, whats the temperature in London?" Siri  "Six centigrade." Alfred"Six centigrade sir." Batman"See?" #2 20140112 19:54:54

Re: Geometry problemThanks guys! actually you don't have use trig, the triangles are 306090, so sides are 2:1:sqrt(3) Last edited by thedarktiger (20140112 21:30:02) Batman shows Superman his new phone.

Re: Geometry problemHi; 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. #6 20140113 05:04:59
Re: Geometry problem
Hhhmmm. And where did that result come from, I wonder? You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei
