What is the area of a hexagon? To perform the calculation of the surface of a hexagon, you need the length of the apothem (which equals half of the height of the shape) and the side or perimeter. In this case, the formula equals perimeter times apothem time a half. Since it is a regular hexagon, apothem can be calculated from one of the sides, and that is why you only need to enter the lenght of a side in our education calculator below.
