## Polygon Area Formula

Formula variable explanation:

• P represents the area.
• a represents the Edge length.
• np represents the Number of sides in polygon.

### LaTeX formula

If you are working in a TeX based editor you could use this TeX formula to calculate the polygon area.

P=\frac{{ a}^{2}\cdot np}{4\cdot\tan\left(\frac{\pi}{ np}\right)}

## How To Calculate The Polygon Area Your Self

Calculating the area is rather simple when you know the formula presented above. Follow these steps:

1. Write down this formula:

2. Then change the following variables with your values:
1. a shall be changed with the Edge length of your polygon. As an example a could be changed to 10.
2. np shall be changed with the Number of sides in polygon of your polygon. As an example np could be changed to 10.
