# A wire in the shape of a regular hexagon of side 6 cm is reshaped to form a square. Find the measure of each side of the square.

**Given:**

A wire is in the shape of a hexagon of side 6cm.

It has to be reshaped to form a square.

**To find: **

The measure of each side of the square.

**Solution:**

Side of hexagon $(x)$ = 6 cm

Perimeter of hexagon = Perimeter of square

Perimeter of hexagon = 6 $\times$ side

6$\times x$ = 6 $\times$ 6 = 36

Perimeter of hexagon = 36 cm

Perimeter of square = 36 cm

Formula of Perimeter of square = 4 $\times$ side

4 $\times$ side = 36

Side = $\frac{36}{4} = 9$

**Side of the square is 9 cm.**
