perimeter = 24 mm

Work Step by Step

RECALL: (1) The perimeter of a polygon is equal to the sum of the lengths of all its sides. (2) The sides of a regular polygon have equal lengths. This means that the five unknown side lengths of the regular hexagon are all $4$ mm. Add the lengths of all the sides to find the perimeter: perimeter = $4+4+4+4+4+4=24$ mm
