The area of a regular polygon with apothem a and perimeter P 1 is A __aP. 2

The apothem is the distance from the center to a side.

Find the area of a regular hexagon with side length 10 cm. Step 1 Draw a figure and find the measure of a central angle. Each central 360° angle measure of a regular n-gon is ____. n A central angle has its vertex at the center. This central angle measure is 360 ____ 60 . n Step 2 Use the tangent ratio to find the apothem. You could also use the 30°-60°-90° Thm. in this case. tan 30° tan 30° leg opposite 30° angle ____________________ leg adjacent to 30° angle 5 cm _____ Write a tangent ratio.
