A Regular Polygon with 117 sides: Area, Perimeter, Interior and Exterior Angles, Inradius, Circumradius



A regular polygon with 117 sides where the length of each side is 10 units. The units may either be inches or cm or km or miles: any unit of length.

You are given a Regular Polygon with 117 sides. What are the interior angles and exterior angles? 
If the length of each side is 10 units, what is the perimeter, area, circum-radius and in-radius of the polygon?

n = 117

Perimeter of a polygon with 117 sides = (side length) x 117 = 1170 units

Area of a polygon with 117 sides = (n x Sidecot (Π/n))/4 = (n x 10cot (Π/117))/4 = 108907.41 square units

Sum of the interior angles of a polygon with 117 sides = 
 (n-2) x 180 degrees =  (117-2) x 180 degrees = 20700 degrees

Interior Angle of a polygon with 117 sides = (n-2) x 180/n degrees = (117-2) x 180/117 degrees = 176.92 degrees 

Exterior angle of a polygon with 117 sides = 180 - Interior Angle = 180 - 176.92 = 3.07 degrees

Inradius = Radius of In-circle = (side length) x cot (Π/117) = 10 x cot 1 = 372.33 units

Circumradius = Radius of Circum-circle = (side length) x cosec (Π/117) = 10 x cosec 1 degrees = 372.46 units

Symmetry Group = D117  117 rotational symmetries and 117 reflection symmetries. The "D" stands for di-hedral.
