What is the area of a 16 sided regular polygon with sides of length L ?

4 Answers

area = L^2/tan(2*pi/32) ~= 5*L^2

area = 16*(L^2/tan(2*pi/32)/2) ~= 40*L^2

Area of a regular polygon A = 1/4 *n*l^2*cot(pi/n) Where n is the number of sides = 16, l is the length of a side = L Therefore A = 1/4*16*L^2 * cot(pi/16) = 20.10*L^2.
