A **regular hexagon **has 6 congruent sides.

The **dimension **of the **rectangle **is 8 inches by [tex]4\sqrt 3[/tex] inches

### How to determine the length of the rectangle

Start by calculating the value of x using the following **cosine ratio**

[tex]\cos(60) = \frac{x}{4}[/tex]

Make x the subject

[tex]x = 4 * \cos(60)[/tex]

Evaluate cos(60)

[tex]x = 4 * 0.5[/tex]

[tex]x = 2[/tex]

So, the **dimension **of the** rectangle** is:

[tex]Length = 2x + 4[/tex]

[tex]Width = 2x\sqrt 3[/tex]

This gives

[tex]Length = 2 * 2 + 4[/tex]

[tex]Length = 8[/tex]

[tex]Width = 2 * 2\sqrt 3[/tex]

[tex]Width = 4\sqrt 3[/tex]

Hence, the **dimension **of the **rectangle **is 8 by [tex]4\sqrt 3[/tex]
