Question from Kim, a student:

i need help finding the area of a regular hexagonal pyramid.


The surface of a regular hexagonal pyramid is made up of a regular hexagon and six congruent isosceles triangles. To find the surface area you need to find the area of each of the seven pieces. How you do this depends on what information you have about the pyramid.
