Hi,

lets see the info from Q:-


1) Its a six sided figure.
2) all sides are equal and all angles are same.

INFERENCE:- its a regular Hexagon.



requirement:-


area of regular hexagon?
if we know a side or any numeric value that can lead to the length of side, it is SUFF..

NOTE:-
The regular Hexagon is equivalent to 6 equilateral triangle,when the center of the Hexagon is joined with all 6 vertices..



lets see the statements:-


A. Each side is \(100\) feet long.
the numeric value of a length is given
suff..

B. The distance from the center of the barn to the midpoint of one of the sides is \(50\sqrt{3}\) feet
this basically gives us teh altitude of one of the equilateral triangle.
we can find the side from it..
Suff

D
