## Lesson 11-3

Areas of Regular Polygons and Circles

### Objectives

• Find areas of regular polygons

• A = ½ Pawhere P is the perimeter of the polygonand a is the length of the apothem

• Find areas of circles

• A = πr²

### Vocabulary

• Apothem – perpendicular bisector from center to side of a regular polygon

### Area of Regular Polygons

x

x

x

Polygons Area

A = 1/2 * P * a

P is the perimeter (# of sides * length)

a is apothem (perpendicular bisector)

Regular (all sides equal!)

Octagon example: A = ½ * 8 * x * a

Circle Area

A = π * r2 = π * (ST)2

S is the Center

### Circle Example 1

Find the area of circle S

T

A = πr²

= π(8)² = 64πsquare units

### Circle Example 2

R

Find the area of circle S, if RT = 20

S

A = πr²

but no r !

T

r = ½ d

A = π(d/2)² = π(20/2)²

= 100πsquare units

### Regular Polygons Area Example 1

Find the area of the hexagon, if the apothem is 4√3

A = ½ P a

a

a = 4√3 and P = 6·8 = 48

A = ½ (48) (4√3)

= 96√3square units

### Regular Polygons Area Example 2

Find the area of the hexagon

A = ½ P a

10

P = 6·10 = 60, but no a!

The dotted line is the hypotenuse to the apothem !

10

Since the interior angle is 120°, then the ∆’s angle is 60° andwe have a 30-60-90 triangle problem.

a = ½ (10) √3 = 5√3

So A = ½ (60) (5√3)

= 150√3square units

### Example 3-1a

Find the area of a regular pentagon with a perimeter of 90 meters.

Apothem: The central angles of a regular pentagon are all congruent. Therefore, the measure of each angle is (360/5) or 72. GF is an apothem of pentagon ABCDE. It bisects EGD and is a perpendicular bisector of ED. So, mDGF = ½(72) = 36°. Since the perimeter is 90 meters, each side is 18 meters and FD = 9 meters.

Write a trigonometric ratio to find the length of GF.

### Example 3-1a

Multiply each side by GF.

Divide each side by tan 36°.

Use a calculator.

Area of a regular polygon

Simplify.

### Example 3-1b

Find the area of a regular pentagon with a perimeter of 120 inches.

### Example 3-2a

An outdoor accessories company manufactures circular covers for outdoor umbrellas. If the cover is 8 inches longer than the umbrella on each side, find the area of the cover in square yards.

The diameter of the umbrella is 72 inches, and the cover must extend 8 inches in each direction. So the diameter of the cover is 8 + 72 + 8 or 88 inches. Divide by 2 to find that the radius is 44 inches.

Area of a circle

Convert 6082.1 square inches to square yards, by dividing by 1296.

Answer:The area of the cover is 4.7 square yards to the nearest tenth.

### Example 3-2b

A swimming pool company manufactures circular covers for above ground pools. If the cover is 10 inches longer than the pool on each side, find the area of the cover in square yards.

To find the area of the triangle, use properties of 30-60-90 triangles. First, find the length of the base. The hypotenuse of so RS is 3.5 and . Since .

### Example 3-3a

Find the area of the shaded region. Assume that the triangle is equilateral. Round to the nearest tenth.

The area of the shaded region is the difference between the area of the circle and the area of the triangle. First, find the area of the circle.

Area of a circle

Next, find the height of the triangle, XS. Since m 3.5

### Example 3-3a

Area of a triangle

Use a calculator.

Answer:The area of the shaded region is 153.9 – 63.7 or 90.2 square centimeters to the nearest tenth.

### Example 3-3b

Find the area of the shaded region. Assume that the triangle is equilateral. Round to the nearest tenth.
