 Question from Joseph: I need the angles in degrees for a hexagon one side is 18inches on the outside the problem I am having is in the angle of the cut and I am using a sliding miter saw which only goes from0 degrees to 45 degrees so I need help in getting the angle of the cut

Hi Joseph,

The interior angles of a regular hexagon have measure $120^o .$ If you set the angle of your miter saw to $30^o$ you can cut an angle of $120^o .$
