## How to Find Pentagon Area Calculator?

A pentagon is defined as a geometrical two-dimensional shape, which has five sides and five angles. The pentagon shape is taken from Greek “Penta” denotes five and “gon” denotes angle and it is a five-sided polygon.

The area of a pentagon is defined as the amount of space enclosed within the boundary of a pentagon.

** 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 a 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 pentagon area with the following length of sides given.

1) side = 7 units 2) side = 12 units
