# Area of a n-sided regular polygon with given side length

Given a regular polygon of **N** sides with side length **a**. The task is to find the area of the polygon. **Examples:**

Input: N = 6, a = 9Output: 210.444Input :N = 7, a = 8Output :232.571

**Approach**: In the figure above, we see the polygon can be divided into **N** equal triangles. Looking into one of the triangles, we see that the whole angle at the center can be divided into = **360/N**

So, angle **t = 180/n**

Now, **tan(t) = a/2*h**

So, **h = a/(2*tan(t))**

Area of each triangle = **(base * height)/2 = a * a/(4*tan(t))**

So, area of the polygon,

A = n * (area of one triangle) = a^{2 * n/(4tan t)}

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
