# How many acute angles does a hexagon have?

Apr 15, 2018

See below

#### Explanation:

A hexagon has 720 degrees in total, if it is a regular hexagon then each angle would be 120, so none would be acute. But you could have 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 acute angles. So the maximum number of acute angles is 5

#### Explanation:

Assuming you are talking about a regular hexagon, all $6$ angles are not acute.

We know this because there are a total of ${720}^{\circ}$ in a hexagon.

Because we know that, and that a hexagon has $6$ angles, we can simply divide:

${720}^{\circ} / 6 = {120}^{\circ}$

Since ${120}^{\circ}$ is bigger than ${90}^{\circ}$, we know that all those angles are obtuse, not acute..
