So, the value of d or interior angle is 120 degrees. Therefore, the exterior angle of a regular hexagon will be = 180 – 120 = 60 degrees.
A rule of polygons is that the sum of the exterior angles always equals 360 degrees. There are six sides in a hexagon, or n = 6 ∴ Exterior angle θ = 360 n = 360 6 = 60∘

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you find the exterior angle of a regular hexagon?
The formula for calculating the size of an exterior angle is: exterior angle of a polygon = 360 ÷ number of sides.
How much do the exterior angles of a hexagon add up to?
Sum of Exterior angle =6× Exterior Angle =360∘
How big is the exterior angle of a hexagon?
What is the size of the exterior angle of a regular hexagon? A rule of polygons is that the sum of the exterior angles always equals 360 degrees.
What is the total degree of a hexagon?
There are six triangles, each having 120 degrees at its base (total at each base). Therefore the sum total of all angles around the inside perimeter of the hexagon is 6 * 120 = 720 degrees.
Can a hexagon be classified as regular or irregular?
Like other polygons, a hexagon can be classified as regular or irregular. If all the sides and interior angles of a hexagon are equal, it is a regular hexagon. Otherwise it is an irregular hexagon. Hexagons or other polygons can also be classified as either convex or concave.
