Hexagons are polygons with six sides (or edges) and six angles (or vertices). They are classified as regular or irregular, as well as convex or concave. More »

A 6-sided polygon is called a hexagon. A polygon is any closed figure with 3 or more sides and angles. Every polygon from 3 to 20 has a name. Polygons with 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100 sides have names, as well. More »

A six-sided shape is called a hexagon as long as all six sides are straight lines and the lines connect to make one closed shape. If it does not close or has curved lines, there is no generic name for the shape. More »

The polygon with 1,000 sides, 1,000 vertices and 1,000 angles is called a chiliagon or a 1,000-gon. The term "chiliagon," with a Greek-derived prefix meaning “thousand,” is a proposed name for the 1,000-sided, two-dimens... More »

Calculating the area of polygons requires specific formula, while calculating perimeters simply involves the addition of all sides of a polygon. Calculating the perimeter or area of circles and other monogons involve for... More »

A vertex is a corner on a polygon, polytope or polyhedron, and when faces, facets or edges of an object come together, a vertex forms; however, because a sphere features no meeting points, it has no vertices. Even though... More »
