Area of Regular Polygons

Objectives • Find the area of regular polygons • Find the area of circles Notes 1. In a regular polygon, a segment drawn from the center of the polygon perpendicular to a side of the polygon is called an apothem. Examples Find the apothem, area, and perimeter of each regular polygon. Round your answers to the nearest tenth.
