an apothem is a line drawn from the center of the shape to the outside. Like a radius of a circle.

ok ty
amistre64
  • amistre64
the thing is; is this radius of a circle drawn insid the shape of outside the shape? inside would mean the apothem = radius
amistre64
  • amistre64
outside woud be the sin of an interior angle
amistre64
  • amistre64
360/8 = 45 degrees as a central angle and each 'other' angle of the is (180-45)/2

Well, we're assuming that the octagon has all angles equalling 360 degrees.
amistre64
  • amistre64
your apothem = r sin[(180-45/2)]

im assuming a circle divide into 8 pieces has central angles of 45 degrees :)
amistre64
  • amistre64
an isoceles triangle with a top angle of 45 has 67.5 as its two bottom angles
