Would 10 nine-inch hexagons make a 90in row? (hexagon measurement = one side,    final row measurement = straight across)

 

Trying to make a queen quilt with large hexy blocks and I'm terrible at math

Try this website: http://www.had2know.com/academics/hexagon-measurement-calculator.html

If you put in one dimension, like length of side (9 in) it will give you the other dimensions.  going from point to opposite point is 18 inches.  But from side to side is 15.58846. 

I'm not good at math, so I had to look it up.
