Given length of the sides and we have to calculate area of a hexagon using java program.

A hexagon has six sides of equal length, so we have to take input the length of the side, which will be considered length of all sides.

    Input the length : 2

    The area of the hexagon is : 10.392304845413264

Program to find area of a hexagon in java

import java.util.Scanner;

public class AreaOfHexagon 
	public static void main(String[] args) 
		// create scanner class object.
		Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
		// enter length of sides.
		System.out.print("Input the length : ");
		double s = sc.nextDouble();
		System.out.print("The area of the hexagon is : " + hexagonArea(s)+"\n");

	// create function for calculating area.
	public static double hexagonArea(double s)
	    return (6*(s*s))/(4*Math.tan(Math.PI/6));


First run:
Input the length : 10
The area of the hexagon is : 259.8076211353316

Second run:
Input the length : 2
The area of the hexagon is : 10.392304845413264
