Which

Which of the following numbers most accurately area of a regular decagon with side s = 2 cm?

(A) 9.51 cm2
(B) 20 cm2
(C) 30.78 cm2
(D) 31.84 cm2
(E) 32.90 cm2

Result

S =  30.777
x = (Correct answer is: C) Wrong answer

Solution:

n=10 a=2  α=2π2 n=2 3.14162 100.3142  tanα=a/2:h h=a/2/tan(α)=2/2/tan(0.3142)3.0777  S1=a h2=2 3.077723.0777  S=n S1=10 3.0777=30.777n=10 \ \\ a=2 \ \\ \ \\ α=\dfrac{ 2 \pi }{ 2 \cdot \ n }=\dfrac{ 2 \cdot \ 3.1416 }{ 2 \cdot \ 10 } \doteq 0.3142 \ \\ \ \\ \tan α=a/2 : h \ \\ h=a/2 / \tan(α)=2/2 / \tan(0.3142) \doteq 3.0777 \ \\ \ \\ S_{1}=\dfrac{ a \cdot \ h }{ 2 }=\dfrac{ 2 \cdot \ 3.0777 }{ 2 } \doteq 3.0777 \ \\ \ \\ S=n \cdot \ S_{1}=10 \cdot \ 3.0777=30.777
