Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3You could find the area of the entire polygon by breaking it into triangles and multiplying the area of that triangle by 12: dw:1338109350047:dw If you divide that triangle in half, it becomes a right triangle so you can use the magic of trigonometric functions to find the height. dw:1338109449920:dw Once you have the height, you can just find the area of the triangle using "A=1/2 bh", and then multiply by 12 to get area of the regular 12sided polygon.
