In exercises 34-45, use your calculator value of π unless otherwise stated. Round answers to two decimal places.Find the approximate area of a regular polygon that has 20 sides if the length of its radius is 7 cm.

To determine

To Find:

The area of a regular polygon that has 20 sides

Explanation

It is given that the polygon has 20 sides.

We know that, when the number of sides of a polygon (n) becomes larger and larger the perimeter of the regular polygon approaches the perimeter of the circle.

It means, PC

Therefore, the perimeter of the polygon is C=2πr.

Therefore, the perimeter of the polygon is C=22277=43.96.

The perimeter of the polygon is 44 cm.

Next, at larger values of n, the apothem of a polygon approaches the radius of the polygon
