Area of a Polygon
(Step by Step) 
1. Find the perimeter by multiplying the side length by the number of sides
2. Find the degrees of the central angle by dividing 360 by the number of central angles. 3. Draw in apothem. 4. Divide central angle by 2. 5. Divide side length by 2. 6. Area = side length divided by the tangent of the (1/2)central angle. 7. Divide by two.
