According to me it is 90.

BE is the angle bisector of FEA. So BEF is 45. Same is tru with FEG. So 45 + 45 should be the answer. Where am I going wrong? I think my spatial imaigination is gone. Where is my Rubik'x cube? :toilet

Bhai,
Yes you are right about FEA and FEG. Add another line BG to your imagination and connect B-E-G. The triangle formed BEG is an equilateral traingle with sides (BE, EG, BG) each equal to a*sqrt(2).

Hence the angle is 60. HTH

giddi : If the 3rd side is imagined then yes i agree that its an equilateral triangle.. But isnt Bhai's argument regarding those 2 angles right..I mean those should be sufficeint..Why do we need to add 1 more line..
May be i am missing something

Andy,

The two anges FEB and FEG are not in the same plane as the is the angle BEG.

Here is an interesting link: (Infact you can rotate the cube that has hexagon inside....)
