I need help on a project. Here is the problem : Dissecting a Hexagon
Draw 6 regular hexagons. Then dissect each hexagon into twelve identical or congruent parts in 6 different ways. Note: A regular hexagon has 6 equal angle and 6 equal sides.
Also, my teacher told me that one of them involved squares, but I can't figure that one out. Please help. I already have these:
Hello, marspatrol!
Draw 6 regular hexagons.
Then dissect each hexagon into twelve identical or congruent parts in 6 different ways.
A regular hexagon can be dissected into 24 equilateral triangles.
Then the 12 congruent parts are diamond-shaped.Code:*---*---* / \ / \ / \ *---*---*---* / \ / \ / \ / \ *---*---*---*---* \ / \ / \ / \ / *---*---*---* \ / \ / \ / *---*---*

Here are two possible dissections . . .
