Given:

The side of a regular hexagon is denoted by \( l \).

To do:

We have to express the perimeter of the hexagon using \( l \).

Solution:

We know that,

The perimeter of a hexagon is equal to the sum of the lengths of the sides.

A regular hexagon has all its six sides equal in length.

Therefore,

Perimeter of the given regular hexagon $=l+l+l+l+l+l=6l$.

The perimeter of the given regular hexagon in terms of $l$ is $6l$.
