    The area of a pentagonal base is given by: A=1/2 * a * 5 * s where a is apothem length s = side and h = height

    In your diagram a=k and h=6 and if I read it correct the side is 4 (1/5 the perimeter).

    There would be two base area and 5 side areas. the side area is 4*6 =24 sq .in and there are 5 sides are 120 sq in. for the sides. The numerical base area needs the value of k to calculate.

    Since the Perimeter is given, side s = 20/5 = 4 in => Area A = 4^2 * 5 / 4 tan ( pi/5) = ...
