Convex and Concave Hexagons

Based on their interior angles, all hexagons are classified into two groups: convex and concave.

Convex and Concave Hexagons

What is a Convex Hexagon

A convex hexagon is a hexagon having each interior angle less than 180°. Each of the vertices of a convex hexagon always points outwards. All the diagonals of such a hexagon lie inside the closed figure. It can be regular or irregular.
