Regular tetracontagon

All sides of a regular tetracontagon are the same length. Each corner is 171°. All corners added together equal 6840°.


The amount of space a regular tetracontagon takes up is

\text{Area} = 10\left(1+\sqrt{5}+\sqrt{5+2\sqrt{5}}+\sqrt{\left(1+\sqrt{5}+\sqrt{5+2\sqrt{5}}\right)^2+1}\right)t^2

a is the length of one of its sides.
