The fact that is not mentioned in the stem or elsewhere, then nothing avoid you to make this assumption about the hexagon and triangles.

It is just another way to solve the problem. The lesson you might learn from this is that flexibility in quant solving problem is king.

Learn this formula:

Area of regular hexagon = \(s^2*\)\(\frac{3\sqrt{3}}{2}\), where s is one side.

Apply and answer D
