A Regular Polygon with 94 sides: Area, Perimeter, Interior and Exterior Angles, Inradius, Circumradius



A regular polygon with 94 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 94 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 = 94

Perimeter of a polygon with 94 sides = (side length) x 94 = 752 units

Area of a polygon with 94 sides = (n x Sidecot (Π/n))/4 = (n x 8cot (Π/94))/4 = 44984.62 square units

Sum of the interior angles of a polygon with 94 sides = 
 (n-2) x 180 degrees =  (94-2) x 180 degrees = 16560 degrees

Interior Angle of a polygon with 94 sides = (n-2) x 180/n degrees = (94-2) x 180/94 degrees = 176.17 degrees 

Exterior angle of a polygon with 94 sides = 180 - Interior Angle = 180 - 176.17 = 3.82 degrees

Inradius = Radius of In-circle = (side length) x cot (Π/94) = 8 x cot 1 = 239.27 units

Circumradius = Radius of Circum-circle = (side length) x cosec (Π/94) = 8 x cosec 1 degrees = 239.41 units

Symmetry Group = D94  94 rotational symmetries and 94 reflection symmetries. The "D" stands for di-hedral.
