Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The apothem of a regular polygon is the perpendicular distance from the center of the polygon to each of its congruent sides. A circle inscribed in a regular polygon has radius equal to the apothem. The inscribed circle is tangent to the sides of the polygon.
