##### 2 Answers

#### Answer:

Zero in a regular hexagon because the angles are all

#### Explanation:

A hexagon has six sides, and the sum of interior angles of a polygon can be calculated in the formula:

Since a hexagon has six sides, the sum of interior angles is

If it is a regular hexagon, all the sides and angles are equal.

so each angle of a regular hexagon is

Thus, a regular hexagon has zero right angles.

#### Answer:

It is only possible for a hexagon to have right angles if it is NOT a regular hexagon, which has been discussed in another answer.

#### Explanation:

An irregular hexagon can have 1,2,3,4 or 5 right angles. Try drawing different shaped hexagons using different numbers of right angles to show this for yourself.

It is possible to have 5 angles of
