The study guide is due tomorrow and I have a lot of questions on it! :(
So, the area of a regular pentagon, given side length is \(\ \huge \frac{5s^2}{4tan(\frac{180}{5})} \). The side length is s, so replace s with 10. The 5 can be replaced with the number of sides of the shape. A pentagon has 5 sides, so I inserted a 5. Now, its a matter of solving the equation... Do you need help with that?
Let me try solving it first.

Okay. I'll solve it, and post your answer when you get it to verify

@elleboedefeld Did you get an answer?
688.19? :(
Okay, so @elleboedefeld, I got \(\ \huge \approx 172.1m^2 \).
Im so stupid.
@elleboedefeld No you're not, it takes time to learn new things. Here's what I did:
\(\ \huge \frac{5 \bullet 10^2}{4tan(\frac{180}{5})} \) = \(\ \huge \frac{500}{4tan(\frac{180}{5})} \) = Type this into a calculator. I think this is where you might have made a mistake. Type this into your calculator like this: 500/4tan((180/5)). If you don't the calculator will misinterpret what you typed in. Then, after rounding to the nearest tenth, I got \(\ \huge \approx 172.1m^2 \). Do you understand?
Yes! Thank you! :)
@elleboedefeld No problem! Good Luck! :D
