# Area of largest Circle inscribe in N-sided Regular polygon

Given a regular polygon of **N** sides with side length **a**. The task is to find the area of the Circle which inscribed in the polygon.

Note : This problem is mixed version of This and This

**Examples:**

Input: N = 6, a = 4Output: 37.6801Explanataion:In this, the polygon have 6 faces and as we see in fig.1 we clearly see that the anglexis 30 degree so the radius of circle will be ( a / (2 * tan(30))) Therefore,r = a√3/2Input:N = 8, a = 8Output:292.81Explanataion:In this, the polygon have 8 faces and as we see in fig.2 we clearly see that the anglexis 22.5 degree so the radius of circle will be ( a / (2 * tan(22.5))) Therefore,r = a/0.828

**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 **x = 180/n**

Now, **tan(x) = (a / 2) * r**

So, **r = a / ( 2 * tan(x))**

So, Area of the Inscribed Circle is,

A = Πr² = Π * (a / (2 * tan(x))) * (a / (2*tan(x)))

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
