**MathMate**, Tuesday, March 29, 2011 at 11:20amFrom the figure above, the height of the hexagon is twice the height of one equilateral triangle.

As for the height of the equilateral triangle, you can subdivide the bottom triangle into two right triangles, with sides 5cm, 10 cm and h=height of triangle.

h can be calculated using Pythagoras theorem:

h²=√(5²+10²)

The height of the hexagon is therefore 2h.
