Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there are 360° in a complete revolution, angle C is 1 eighteenth of the wayround \[\angle C=360°/18\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait what so how its it 20 on there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1did you simplify \(\angle C =\frac{360°}{18}=\dots\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[36=2\times18\] \[360=2 \times 18\times10\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well the shape can be see as 18 of those little right angled triangle joined together, find the area of one then multiply by 18

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thats all it gives you. Find the area. I know it has something to do with finding the apothem and finding the perimeter and using the TAN function.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well should i sing you a lullaby instead ?

UnkleRhaukus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok so you might want to find the angle in triangle first, remember there are 360° in a revolution and i count 10 angles, so the angle in is \[360°/10\]

UnkleRhaukus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1next find the length of the perpendicular , using the angle you just found and the tangent function

UnkleRhaukus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1338433908040:dw, find the area of the triangle and lastly multiply this area by the number of those triangles in the decagon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0360/10 =36? When I apply the TAN to 36 it's weird...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1true, what did you determine as an approximation of length b

UnkleRhaukus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12 significant figures is probably fine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0huh? I didnt get that far becuase I thought you need to know the TAN of 36

UnkleRhaukus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah \[\tan(36°)\approx0.727\]

UnkleRhaukus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\tan(36°)=\frac{\text{opp}}{\text{adj}}=\frac 2 b\] \[b=\frac {2}{\tan36°}\approx\cdots\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why is it b= 2/tan36?

UnkleRhaukus
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we are trying to find \(b\) so we can work out the are of the triangle \[\tan(36°)=\frac{\text{opp}}{\text{adj}}=\frac 2 b\] multiply both sides by \(b\) then divide both sides by \(\tan36°\)

UnkleRhaukus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes \(b\approx 2.75\)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then after we find the area which is 2.752 we take the perimeter which is 40, and do 1/2* 2.752* 40

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0THe formula for Area is. 1/2 * Apothem * perimeter

UnkleRhaukus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1whatever, my method is better ~ so the area of the small right angled triangle is 2.752 and there are 20 of these in the decagon the the total area is simply \(A_{decagon}=2.752\times20=\cdots\)
