A Regular Polygon with 142 sides: Area, Perimeter, Interior and Exterior Angles, Inradius, Circumradius



A regular polygon with 142 sides where the length of each side is 9 units. The units may either be inches or cm or km or miles: any unit of length.

You are given a Regular Polygon with 142 sides. What are the interior angles and exterior angles? 
If the length of each side is 9 units, what is the perimeter, area, circum-radius and in-radius of the polygon?

n = 142

Perimeter of a polygon with 142 sides = (side length) x 142 = 1278 units

Area of a polygon with 142 sides = (n x Sidecot (Π/n))/4 = (n x 9cot (Π/142))/4 = 129951.4 square units

Sum of the interior angles of a polygon with 142 sides = 
 (n-2) x 180 degrees =  (142-2) x 180 degrees = 25200 degrees

Interior Angle of a polygon with 142 sides = (n-2) x 180/n degrees = (142-2) x 180/142 degrees = 177.46 degrees 

Exterior angle of a polygon with 142 sides = 180 - Interior Angle = 180 - 177.46 = 2.53 degrees

Inradius = Radius of In-circle = (side length) x cot (Π/142) = 9 x cot 1 = 406.73 units

Circumradius = Radius of Circum-circle = (side length) x cosec (Π/142) = 9 x cosec 1 degrees = 406.83 units

Symmetry Group = D142  142 rotational symmetries and 142 reflection symmetries. The "D" stands for di-hedral.
