1. A regular hexagon can be divided into 6 equal equilateral triangles.
So each one has an area of 64√3
let's look at one of those.
Area of a triangle = (1/2)absinØ, where a and b are sides with Ø as their contained angle.
If each side is x, then
(1/2)x^2 sin60° = 64√3
(1/2) x^2 (√3/2) = 64√3
x^2 = 256
x = 16
