##### Formula
```A = 3/2*1.7320508075688772935274463415059a²
P =a6
where A is the area of the hexagon
1.7320508075688772935274463415059 a constant
a the length of a side
P the perimeter of the hexagon

```

##### Conversions
```one metre (m) = 3.28083989501312 feet (ft)
one metre (m) = 39.3700787401575 inches (in)
one square metre (m²) = 10.7639104167097 square feet (ft²)
one square metre (m²) = 1550.0031000062 square inches (in²)
