Expert Answer:

A Hexagon is a polygon which has 6 equal sides. Here, the length of the side = 2 inches

We find the perimeter by adding the lengths of the edges.

Perimeter of the hexagon = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2

                                     = 6 x 2

                                     = 12 inches

Thus, the perimeter of the hexagon is 12 inches.
