A Regular Polygon with 52 sides: Area, Perimeter, Interior and Exterior Angles, Inradius, Circumradius



A regular polygon with 52 sides where the length of each side is 8 units. The units may either be inches or cm or km or miles: any unit of length.

You are given a Regular Polygon with 52 sides. What are the interior angles and exterior angles? 
If the length of each side is 8 units, what is the perimeter, area, circum-radius and in-radius of the polygon?

n = 52

Perimeter of a polygon with 52 sides = (side length) x 52 = 416 units

Area of a polygon with 52 sides = (n x Sidecot (Π/n))/4 = (n x 8cot (Π/52))/4 = 13754.59 square units

Sum of the interior angles of a polygon with 52 sides = 
 (n-2) x 180 degrees =  (52-2) x 180 degrees = 9000 degrees

Interior Angle of a polygon with 52 sides = (n-2) x 180/n degrees = (52-2) x 180/52 degrees = 173.07 degrees 

Exterior angle of a polygon with 52 sides = 180 - Interior Angle = 180 - 173.07 = 6.92 degrees

Inradius = Radius of In-circle = (side length) x cot (Π/52) = 8 x cot 3 = 132.25 units

Circumradius = Radius of Circum-circle = (side length) x cosec (Π/52) = 8 x cosec 3 degrees = 132.49 units

Symmetry Group = D52  52 rotational symmetries and 52 reflection symmetries. The "D" stands for di-hedral.
