 shaded triangle:hexagon == 2*1/6=1/3 =1:3 – OM Loo Sep 16 '12 at 16:29 Is this the answareshaded triangle:hexagon == 1:3? – OM Loo Sep 16 '12 at 16:30 @OMLoo: yes, it is – enzotib Sep 16 '12 at 16:33 May I know the correct way to work out answer for triangle:hexagon ratio in this case? – OM Loo Sep 17 '12 at 4:39 $A_{\text{hex}}=6A_{\text{eqtri}}$; $A_{\text{shad}}=2A_{\text{eqtri}}$; $r=A_{\text{shad}}/A_{\text{hex}}=(2A_{\text{eqtri}})/(6A_{\text{eqtri}})=1/3$ – enzotib Sep 17 '12 at 10:21
