A Regular Polygon with 118 sides: Area, Perimeter, Interior and Exterior Angles, Inradius, Circumradius



A regular polygon with 118 sides where the length of each side is 3 units. The units may either be inches or cm or km or miles: any unit of length.

You are given a Regular Polygon with 118 sides. What are the interior angles and exterior angles? 
If the length of each side is 3 units, what is the perimeter, area, circum-radius and in-radius of the polygon?

n = 118

Perimeter of a polygon with 118 sides = (side length) x 118 = 354 units

Area of a polygon with 118 sides = (n x Sidecot (Π/n))/4 = (n x 3cot (Π/118))/4 = 9969.97 square units

Sum of the interior angles of a polygon with 118 sides = 
 (n-2) x 180 degrees =  (118-2) x 180 degrees = 20880 degrees

Interior Angle of a polygon with 118 sides = (n-2) x 180/n degrees = (118-2) x 180/118 degrees = 176.94 degrees 

Exterior angle of a polygon with 118 sides = 180 - Interior Angle = 180 - 176.94 = 3.05 degrees

Inradius = Radius of In-circle = (side length) x cot (Π/118) = 3 x cot 1 = 112.65 units

Circumradius = Radius of Circum-circle = (side length) x cosec (Π/118) = 3 x cosec 1 degrees = 112.69 units

Symmetry Group = D118  118 rotational symmetries and 118 reflection symmetries. The "D" stands for di-hedral.
