 * Exercise 2.16 - Geometry: Area of a Hexagon

import java.util.Scanner;

public class Ex02_16 {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        //Display Program Information
        System.out.println("This Program Calculates The Area Of A Hexagon.\n");

        //create Scanner 
        Scanner input = new Scanner(;

        //prompt user to enter details
        System.out.println("Enter the length of a side of the hexagon:");
        double side = input.nextDouble();

        //calculate area using the formula ((3√3) ÷ 2) * the square of the length of a side
        double area = ((3 * (Math.pow(3, 0.5))) / 2) * side * side;
        //format area to two decimal places
        area = (int) (area * 10000) / 10000.0;

        //display the result
        System.out.println("The area of the hexagon is " + area + "\n");
