To

**draw**a**hexagon**, start by tracing something round to make a circle. Then, use a ruler to**draw**a horizontal line through the center of the circle. Next, take the ruler and**draw**an "x" over the circle so it's divided into 6 equal parts.Hereof, how do you draw a triangle?

**Method 1** **Using a Compass**

- Draw a straight line. Lay your ruler on the paper, then trace a pencil along the straight edge.
- Span the segment with your compass.
- Trace a quarter-circle arc.
- Switch the compass around.
- Draw a second arc.
- Mark the point where the two arcs cross.
- Finish the triangle.

Also, what is a 7 sided polygon? In geometry, a heptagon is a seven-**sided polygon** or **7**-gon. The heptagon is sometimes referred to as the septagon, using "sept-" (an elision of septua-, a Latin-derived numerical prefix, rather than hepta-, a Greek-derived numerical prefix; both are cognate) together with the Greek suffix "-agon" meaning angle.

**Method 2** **Drawing a Rough Hexagon Using a Round Object and a Ruler**

- Trace the round rim of a glass with a pencil.
- Draw a horizontal line through the center of your circle.
- Draw an X over the halved circle, splitting it up into 6 equal sections.
- Turn each of the six sections into triangles.
- Erase your guiding lines.
