List the ordered pairs of points that represent corners of an octagon
Hello, mwp141!
$\displaystyle \text{List the ordered pairs of points that represent corners of an octagon.}$
Plato is absolutely right . . .
With no further information, here is an acceptable answer:
. . $\displaystyle (x_1,y_1),\;(x_2,y_2),\;(x_3,y_3),\;(x_4,y_4),\;(x _5,y_5),\;(x_6,y_6),\;(x_7,y_7),\;(x_8,y_8)$
You could have saved us all time if you had done that to begin with.
A regular octagon centered at the origin and ‘radius’ one has vertex coordinates of:
$\displaystyle \left\{ {\left( {\cos \left( {\frac{\pi }{8} + \frac{{k\pi }}
{4}} \right),\sin \left( {\frac{\pi }{8} + \frac{{k\pi }}{4}} \right)} \right):k = 0,1, \cdots ,7} \right\}$.
