That's quite a question @Rohit Camfar , I have competed in the BMO but that's as far as I've gone, IMO is for the very best! What makes you ask? Besides, I have chosen to study Engineering not maths at University:) Are you an IMO aspirant by any chance? I have another question for you- is 14 your real age?

So, you are not interested in IMO. I asked you because I have created a group on Slack where we prepare for RMO (the way to IMO in India). I am searching for IMO aspirants around the world on Brilliant. Its Okay if you are not an IMO aspirant.

divide hexagon to 6 - equilateral triangles each with side length (a) by joining the center of hexagon to each vetices.

area of each equilateral triangle = sqrt3/4*a^2

area of hexagon = 6sqrt3a^2 /4 = 3sqrt3a^2 /2
