how to figure out size of hex tank

this is the hex tank we picked up on craigs list. the stand was built by the previous owner. i thought it was a gorgeous stand and the setup was a steal for $25. he had it listed as a 25 gallon tank. i wanted to make sure of the size because a couple of people told me it looked bigger than that and i've also never heard of a 25 gallon hex tank. so how do i figure out how many gallons it is? i know i've seen ways to figure out box shaped tanks, would it work for this shape? it's 23.5" tall and each panel is 10" wide.

all you need is the length of one side and the height, which if your measurements are accurate, your tank is 26.43 gallons.
