You are decorating the top of a table by covering it with small ceramic tiles. The table top is a regular octagon with 15inch sides and a radius of about 19.6inches. What is the area you are covering?

Find the area of a regular polygon

EXAMPLE 2

DECORATING

SOLUTION

STEP 1

Find the perimeter Pof the table top. An

octagon has 8 sides, so P = 8(15) = 120inches.

Find the apothem small ceramic tiles. The table top is a regular octagon with a. The apothem is height

RSof ∆PQR. Because ∆PQRis isosceles,

altitude RSbisects QP.

So,QS = (QP) = (15) = 7.5 inches.

a = RS ≈ √19.62 – 7.52 = 327.91 ≈ 18.108

Find the area of a regular polygon

EXAMPLE 2

STEP 2

To find RS, use the Pythagorean

Theorem for ∆ RQS.

So, the perimeter is P = 9s = 9(8 sin 20°) = 72 sin 20° ≈ 24.6 units,

and the area is A = aP = (4 cos 20°)(72 sin20°)≈46.3 square units.
