## How to Find Area and Perimeter of Octagon?

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

** Area of Octagon = 2s ^{2}(1+√2) = 4.828 s^{2} square units**

Where,'s' is the length of the side of an octagon.

The** perimeter of an octagon** is defined as the sum of all lengths of the sides of an octagon. The formula to calculate the perimeter of an octagon is:

**The perimeter of an octagon = sum of all sides of octagon = 8 × s**

Where,'s' is the length of the side of an octagon.

**Solved Example:**

Find the area and perimeter of an octagon whose length of a side is 8 units.

**Solution:**

Area of octagon = 2s^{2}(1+√2) = 4.828 * s^{2}

= 4.828 × 8^{2}

= 4.828 × 64

= 309.02 square units

The perimeter of an octagon = 8 × s

= 8 × 8

= 64 units

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the area and perimeter of an octagon for the following:

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