A Regular Polygon with 130 sides: Area, Perimeter, Interior and Exterior Angles, Inradius, Circumradius



A regular polygon with 130 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 130 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 = 130

Perimeter of a polygon with 130 sides = (side length) x 130 = 390 units

Area of a polygon with 130 sides = (n x Sidecot (Π/n))/4 = (n x 3cot (Π/130))/4 = 12101.37 square units

Sum of the interior angles of a polygon with 130 sides = 
 (n-2) x 180 degrees =  (130-2) x 180 degrees = 23040 degrees

Interior Angle of a polygon with 130 sides = (n-2) x 180/n degrees = (130-2) x 180/130 degrees = 177.23 degrees 

Exterior angle of a polygon with 130 sides = 180 - Interior Angle = 180 - 177.23 = 2.76 degrees

Inradius = Radius of In-circle = (side length) x cot (Π/130) = 3 x cot 1 = 124.11 units

Circumradius = Radius of Circum-circle = (side length) x cosec (Π/130) = 3 x cosec 1 degrees = 124.15 units

Symmetry Group = D130  130 rotational symmetries and 130 reflection symmetries. The "D" stands for di-hedral.
