Gerrad is a painter. he is using a canvas that is in the shape of a regular hexagon. The perimeter of the canvas is 78 in. The perpendicular distance from a side to the center is 11 in. to the nearest inch. Based on these measurements, what is area of the canvas

Divide the canvas into 6 isosceles triangles.
Base of triangle = 78/6=13"
Height of triangle = 11"
Area of each triangle = 11*13/2
Total area of canvas=11*13/2*6=432 sq.in.
