A Regular Polygon with 115 sides: Area, Perimeter, Interior and Exterior Angles, Inradius, Circumradius



A regular polygon with 115 sides where the length of each side is 5 units. The units may either be inches or cm or km or miles: any unit of length.

You are given a Regular Polygon with 115 sides. What are the interior angles and exterior angles? 
If the length of each side is 5 units, what is the perimeter, area, circum-radius and in-radius of the polygon?

n = 115

Perimeter of a polygon with 115 sides = (side length) x 115 = 575 units

Area of a polygon with 115 sides = (n x Sidecot (Π/n))/4 = (n x 5cot (Π/115))/4 = 26303.75 square units

Sum of the interior angles of a polygon with 115 sides = 
 (n-2) x 180 degrees =  (115-2) x 180 degrees = 20340 degrees

Interior Angle of a polygon with 115 sides = (n-2) x 180/n degrees = (115-2) x 180/115 degrees = 176.86 degrees 

Exterior angle of a polygon with 115 sides = 180 - Interior Angle = 180 - 176.86 = 3.13 degrees

Inradius = Radius of In-circle = (side length) x cot (Π/115) = 5 x cot 1 = 182.98 units

Circumradius = Radius of Circum-circle = (side length) x cosec (Π/115) = 5 x cosec 1 degrees = 183.05 units

Symmetry Group = D115  115 rotational symmetries and 115 reflection symmetries. The "D" stands for di-hedral.
