## How to Find the Area of a Pentagon?

The area of a pentagon is defined as the amount of space enclosed within the boundary of a pentagon. It is measured in square units. The formula to calculate the area of a pentagon is given by

**Area of Pentagon = 1/4√ (5(5 + 2√5)) s ^{2} = 1.72 s^{2} square units**

Where 's' is the length of the side of the pentagon.

**Solved Example:**

Find the area of a pentagon whose length of the side is 5 units.

**Solution:**

Area of pentagon = 1.72 s^{2}

= 1.72 × 5^{2}

= 1.72 × 25

= 43 square units

Therefore, the area of a pentagon is 43 square units.

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the area of a pentagon for the following:

- Length of the side = 7 units
- Length of the side = 12 units
