How is this done? Would we divide it into triangles?

Thanks a lot for helping.

**drwls**, Wednesday, December 19, 2012 at 9:28amRealize that a hexagon is six equilateral triangles stacked together. You need the radii if the inscribed and circumscribed circles. The area ratio is the square of the ratio of those two radii.

The circumscribed circle radius is the side length of the equilateral triangles. Call that a. The inscribed circle has a radius that is the height of the equilateral triangles, a*sqrt3/2

The square of the radius ratio is 3/4
