please help with determining a perimeter around a square

Hi
I have a hexagon perimeter I would like to calculate, however I only have the measurements of the square that is inside it. Is there a formula for determining the perimeter of that specific hexagon. A method for determining the perimeter of that hexagon will be greatly appreciated since there are a few different ones that I would like to work out.

If a formula does exist, then are there more formulae to continue to determine the successive poligons that surround that square. If it is possible, the ultimate perimeter I would be looking for would then be the nongan that surrounds all of them.

I have tried to post to images of what Im referring to above. Hopefully they are attached below.

Thank you very much for your assistance.
Edwin

Thank you for your reply, 55 the link you provided takes me to a site where it looks like I have to buy the answer. I dont seem to be able to upload a picture for some reason. The explanation though I am hoping is enough though to get an answer, if a more detailed explanation is required I will be glad to give it a shot.
