A Regular Polygon with 29 sides: Area, Perimeter, Interior and Exterior Angles, Inradius, Circumradius



A regular polygon with 29 sides where the length of each side is 2 units. The units may either be inches or cm or km or miles: any unit of length.

You are given a Regular Polygon with 29 sides. What are the interior angles and exterior angles? 
If the length of each side is 2 units, what is the perimeter, area, circum-radius and in-radius of the polygon?

n = 29

Perimeter of a polygon with 29 sides = (side length) x 29 = 58 units

Area of a polygon with 29 sides = (n x Sidecot (Π/n))/4 = (n x 2cot (Π/29))/4 = 266.65 square units

Sum of the interior angles of a polygon with 29 sides = 
 (n-2) x 180 degrees =  (29-2) x 180 degrees = 4860 degrees

Interior Angle of a polygon with 29 sides = (n-2) x 180/n degrees = (29-2) x 180/29 degrees = 167.58 degrees 

Exterior angle of a polygon with 29 sides = 180 - Interior Angle = 180 - 167.58 = 12.41 degrees

Inradius = Radius of In-circle = (side length) x cot (Π/29) = 2 x cot 6 = 18.38 units

Circumradius = Radius of Circum-circle = (side length) x cosec (Π/29) = 2 x cosec 6 degrees = 18.49 units

Symmetry Group = D29  29 rotational symmetries and 29 reflection symmetries. The "D" stands for di-hedral.
