Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from kendra, a student:

i have questions on how to find the area of pentagons, hexagons, and nonagons.
i was asked to find the area of all of them and they gave me either the length of one side or the perimeter. for a pentagon it said.

a pentagon with a perimeter of 45 ft. i need help trying to find the area of the pentagon.



Try typing polygon area into our Quick Search. The entry titled Finding the area of a regular polygon will tell you all you need to know.
