Question: I want to figure out the square footage of an octagon. i have 8 panels that are 24" wide. Its for my dogs and i wanna know how much room they'll have.

Nikki,

In the answer to a previous question I calculated the area of an octagon with sides of length 10 feet. I used the same technique for your octagon which his sides of length 2 feet and I got 19.3 square feet.
