I wanted to find a relationship between the number of sides of a regular polygon inscribed in a unit circle and the length of side of the polygon (The vertices are roots of equation in the form of Z^n=1).
I came up with two equation that Length = 2sin(pi/n) and Length= Sqrt(2-2cos(2pi/n) , where n is the number of sides.
I was able to prove the two roles geometrically ,
But I need to prove them , or at least one of them analytically (e.g. using algebra)
Can you help me?
May I repeat my questions ... I'm looking for porving the relationship bewteen the number of sides and length of one side of a regular polygon inscribed inside a unit circle of radius (1). The rules I came with were : Length = 2sin(pi/n) and Length= Sqrt(2-2cos(2pi/n). I've made the gemoetric proofs....and looking for alegbriac proofs....Do they exist in the link you offered me ? Can you instruct me to their location ?
