We'll recall the fact that the sum of all interior angles of a regular polygon is:

S = (n-2)*180, where n is the number of sides.

A hexagon has 6 sides, therefore the sum of internal angles is:

S = 4*180

S = 720 degrees

The angles of hexagon are given, except the measure of u.

145.8 + 118.5 + 151.6 + 100.4 + 130.8 + u = 720

u = 720 - (145.8 + 118.5 + 151.6 + 100.4 + 130.8)

u = 72.9 => u = 73.3 degrees

**The missing angle of hexagon, u, measures 73.3 degrees.**
