Official Solution:

A regular hexagon is inscribed in a circle. If the radius of the circle is 1, what is the length of the side of the hexagon? (A hexagon is a six-sided polygon).

A. \(\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\)
B. \(2\sqrt{3}\)
C. \(1\)
D. \(\sqrt{2}\)
E. \(\sqrt{3}\)

Connect the center of the circle with each of the hexagon's vertices to get six triangles. In each triangle, the angle at the center is 60 degrees \((\frac{360}{6})\). The two other angles are also 60 degrees each. Thus, all six triangles are equilateral.

Answer: C

Could you please explain why the other 2 angles are also 60?

Hi,
hexagon as shown is inscribed in the circle..
each angle of hexagon is 120...
when you join opposite vertices, these are also the diagonals and bisect the angles 120..

this is the reason why all three angles are 60 and teh side of hexa too equals radius =1..
hope it helps
