## How to Find the Area of Regular Polygon?

A polygon is a closed two-dimensional figure, that comprises three or more straight lines.

The area of the regular polygon is defined as the amount of space enclosed within the boundary of a polygon. It is measured in square units.

**Area of the polygon = (s) ^{2} × N / 4tan(π / N)**

Where 's' is the length of the side of the polygon, 'N' is the number of sides of the polygon.

**Solved example:**

Find the area of the regular polygon if the number of sides of a polygon is 3 and the length of a side of the polygon is 5 units.

**Solution:**

Area of the polygon = (s)^{2} × N / 4tan(π / N)

= 5^{2} × 3 / 4tan(180 / 3) [assume π = 180°]

= 25 × 3 / 4tan60°

= 10.839 square units

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the area of the regular polygon for:

- Number of sides = 7 and length of the side of the polygon = 14 units
- Number of sides = 9 and length of the side of the polygon = 8 units
