# Area of decagon inscribed within the circle

Given here is a regular decagon, inscribed within a circle of radius **r**, the task is to find the area of the decagon.

**Examples:**

Input:r = 5Output:160.144Input:r = 8Output:409.969

**Approach**:

We know, side of the decagon within the circle, **a = r√(2-2cos36)**(Refer here)

So, area of the decagon,

A = 5*a^2*(√5+2√5)/2 = 5 *(r√(2-2cos36))^2*(√5+2√5)/2=(5*r^2*(3-√5)*(√5+2√5))/4

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

`// C++ Program to find the area of the decagon ` `// inscribed within a circle ` `#include <bits/stdc++.h> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `// Function to find the area of the decagon ` `float` `area(` `float` `r) ` `{ ` ` ` ` ` `// radius cannot be negative ` ` ` `if` `(r < 0) ` ` ` `return` `-1; ` ` ` ` ` `// area of the decagon ` ` ` `float` `area = (5 * ` `pow` `(r, 2) * (3 - ` `sqrt` `(5)) ` ` ` `* (` `sqrt` `(5) + (2 * ` `sqrt` `(5)))) ` ` ` `/ 4; ` ` ` `return` `area; ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` `float` `r = 8; ` ` ` `cout << area(r) << endl; ` ` ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |
