    well, okay, it's a regular polygon and on the paper it says perimeter equals number of sides times side length. So I guess I'm asking how to find the side length given the radius.

    is this a triangle drawn inside of a circle? Or drawn on the outside of a circle?

    ..... might need to adjust my thoughts for the circle drawn inside; then the apothem is still the altitude, but we need to determine a side

    a side is simply twice the base of the right tri made from the radius and its tangelt to the circle...
