A hexagon is a polygon with six sides and six angles. The sum of the interior angles of a hexagon is always 720 degrees. Each interior angle of a regular hexagon measures 120 degrees.

- Number of sides: 6
- Number of angles: 6
- Sum of interior angles: 720 degrees
- Sum of exterior angles: 360 degrees
- Each interior angle in a regular hexagon: 120 degrees

There are two main types of hexagons:

- Regular Hexagon: A hexagon with all sides of equal length and all angles of equal measure.
- Irregular Hexagon: A hexagon with sides and/or angles of different lengths and measures.

Some important formulas related to hexagons include:

- Area of Regular Hexagon:
**Area = (3√3 * s**(where s is the length of a side)^{2})/2 - Perimeter of Hexagon:
**Perimeter = 6 * s**(where s is the length of a side)

Examples of hexagons can be found in real-life objects such as honeycombs, nuts, bolts, and some forms of crystals.

- Calculate the interior angles of a regular hexagon.
- Find the perimeter of a regular hexagon with each side measuring 5 cm.
- Determine the area of a regular hexagon with a side length of 8 units.

Understanding the properties and formulas related to hexagons is important for solving problems in geometry and real-world applications.
