# Hexagon

Hexagon – a polygon with 6 sides

**Hex**agons and **six** both contain an X.

**Example 1**

Honeycomb, like in a bee hive, is made up of many hexagons.

**Example 2**

Regular hexagons have sides that are all the same length. Irregular hexagons have sides that are different lengths.

**Example 3**

The internal angle between the sides of a regular hexagon is 120°. Internal angles are discussed in detail in the section Interior angles of polygons

**Example 4**

Hexagons can be convex or concave.
