A Regular Polygon with 125 sides: Area, Perimeter, Interior and Exterior Angles, Inradius, Circumradius



A regular polygon with 125 sides where the length of each side is 6 units. The units may either be inches or cm or km or miles: any unit of length.

You are given a Regular Polygon with 125 sides. What are the interior angles and exterior angles? 
If the length of each side is 6 units, what is the perimeter, area, circum-radius and in-radius of the polygon?

n = 125

Perimeter of a polygon with 125 sides = (side length) x 125 = 750 units

Area of a polygon with 125 sides = (n x Sidecot (Π/n))/4 = (n x 6cot (Π/125))/4 = 44752.9 square units

Sum of the interior angles of a polygon with 125 sides = 
 (n-2) x 180 degrees =  (125-2) x 180 degrees = 22140 degrees

Interior Angle of a polygon with 125 sides = (n-2) x 180/n degrees = (125-2) x 180/125 degrees = 177.12 degrees 

Exterior angle of a polygon with 125 sides = 180 - Interior Angle = 180 - 177.12 = 2.87 degrees

Inradius = Radius of In-circle = (side length) x cot (Π/125) = 6 x cot 1 = 238.68 units

Circumradius = Radius of Circum-circle = (side length) x cosec (Π/125) = 6 x cosec 1 degrees = 238.75 units

Symmetry Group = D125  125 rotational symmetries and 125 reflection symmetries. The "D" stands for di-hedral.
