The perimeter of a hexagon is the total distance covered around its edge. The perimeter is always linear. So its units are also linear, such as cm, in, m, ft, or yd.

The basic formula to find the perimeter of a regular hexagon is given below:

Let us solve some examples to understand the concept better.

**What is the perimeter of the hexagon ABCDEF with a side of 7.3 cm?**

Solution:

As we know,

Perimeter (P) = 6s, here s = 7.3 cm

= 6 × 7.3

= 43.8 cm

Finding the perimeter of a regular hexagon when **AREA** is known

**Find the perimeter of a hexagon having an area of 54√3 sq. m**

Solution:

As we know,

Area (A) = 3√3/2 × (s)^{2} , here A = 54√3 sq. m, s = side (unknown)

s^{2} = (54√3 ÷ 3√3) × 2

= 36

s = 6

Perimeter (P) = 6s, here s = 6 m

= 6 × 6

= 36 m

Finding the perimeter of an irregular hexagon when **EACH SIDE** is known

**Find the perimeter of a hexagon with side lengths 9 cm, 10 cm, 14 cm, 13 cm, 12 cm, and 8 cm.**

Solution:

As we know,

Perimeter (P) of an irregular hexagon is the sum of all its sides

P = 9 + 10 + 14 + 13 + 12 + 8

= 66 cm
