Pentadecagon

Calculate the content of a regular 15-sides polygon inscribed in a circle with radius r = 4. Express the result to two decimal places.

Correct answer:

S =  48.8084

Step-by-step explanation:

n=15 r=4  α=2 n2π=2 152 3.14160.2094  sinα=a/2:r  a=2 r sin(α)=2 4 sin(0.2094)1.6633 cosα=h:r  h=r cos(α)=4 cos(0.2094)3.9126  S1=2a h=21.6633 3.91263.2539  S=n S1=15 3.2539=48.8084
