**1. Homework Statement**

A circle of radius r is impressed in a hexagon. Find the area of the hexagon.

**2. Homework Equations**

Area of a triangle = (1/2)bh

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

The hexagon can be split up into six triangles, and with the formula for the area of a triangle, becomes (6)(1/2*bh).

Does the circle in the problem even matter? It makes it seem like there is more to the problem than there really is. Is there something I overlooked?
