Recently, when making some calculations for people, I came across what I hope is a new formula. I have done some googling and I can't find it anywhere.
Could you take a look at this and tell me if it rings any bells? Does it even make any sense? I have applied it to a number of random shapes and they all came out exactly correct.
Please excuse me for any stupid mistakes I made. I'm not much of a math wonder
The area of any regular polygon is determined by the formula
½ax*tan((180a - 360)/2a)
with a = number of sides
with x = length of a side
I figured that if anyone could help me it would be you guys. In any case, thank you for your time.
