**2 Finding the Area of a Regular Polygon A library is in the shape 18.0 ft
**

of a regular octagon. Each side is 18.0 ft. The radius of the octagon is

23.5 ft. Find the area of the library to the nearest 10 ft 2.

Consecutive radii form an isosceles triangle, so an apothem bisects

23.5 ft

the side of the octagon.

To apply the area formula A 12ap, you need to find a and p.

of a regular polygon.

p (8) ( ) Substitute for n and for s, and simplify.

**Step 3 Find the area A.

A Simplify.

**To the nearest 10 ft 2, the area is ft 2.

**3 Applying Theorem 7-12 Find the area of an equilateral triangle
**

with apothem 8 cm. Leave your answer in simplest radical form.

This equilateral triangle shows two radii forming an angle that measures

360 120. Because the radii and a side form an isosceles triangle, s

3

the apothem bisects the 120 angle, forming two angles. 60

You can use a 30-60-90 triangle to find half the length of a side. 8 cm 60
