  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

    take it from here
