I don't see a picture...
Hey sorry if this is in the wrong place and if the picture is too small but I need some help
What can you say about a triangle that is inscribed in a hexagon, where the vertices of the triangle hits the midpoint of 3 sides of a hexagon?
if there is something about it please explain it to me so I can understand better, thanks.
Hello, gfbrd!
What can you say about a triangle that is inscribed in a regular hexagon,
where the vertices of the triangle are the midpoint of 3 sides of a hexagon?
What do they want me to say?
. . It has three sides.
. . It has three angles.
. . It is equilateral.
. . It has 60^{o} angles.
Okay, I'll get serious . . .
A regular hexagon is composed of six equilateral triangles of side a.
Consider the upper half of the hexagon.
We have an isosceles trapezoid.Code:: - - a - - : * * * * * * . . * a * . . * a *=================* * . . * * . . * * * * * * * * * * : - - a - - : - - a - - :
The side of the triangle is the median.
Its length is the average of the lengths
. . of the two parallel sides.
Hence, the side of the triangle is
The triangle's perimeter is of the hexagon's perimeter.
The triangle's area is of the hexagon's area.
