Regular Polygons
This calculator works
only
for
regular polygons
- those which have
ALL sides equal and ALL interior angles equal.
The above figure shows a
regular polygon
.
The outer circle surrounding it is called a
circumscribed circle (or circumcircle)
and the inner circle which is surrounded be the octagon is called the
inscribed circle (or incircle)
.
Angle EAB is one of the 8
interior angles
.
Angle EAF is one of the 8
exterior angles
and equals
central angle ACB
.
Line AC is called the
circum radius
(the radius of the outer, circumscribed circle).
Line CD is called the
inradius
(the radius of the inscribed circle).
