The heptagon calculator will assist you in finding parameters related to the heptagon shape. Be it the sides of a heptagon or perimeter or area, this calculator can help you with all of that. You can start by entering some numbers in the tool or reading on to understand what a heptagon is.

Heptagon — Area, Perimeter, and Side length

A heptagon is a polygon with 7 sides and 7 angles. The words heptagon and septagon are from Greek and Latin origins, with "hept" and "sept" referring to 7. For a regular polygon with nn sides, the internal and external angles, α\alpha & β\beta are

α=(n2)πnβ=2πn\alpha = \frac{(n - 2)\pi}{n}\\[1em] \beta = \frac{2\pi}{n}

The area and the perimeter, PP of the heptagon (n=7n=7) is

Area=n4×a2×cot(πn)Area=74×a2×cot(π7)Area=3.634a2P=n×aP=7×a\begin{align*} \text{Area} &= \frac{n}{4} \times a^2 \times \cot \left ( \frac{\pi}{n} \right )\\[1em] \text{Area} &= \frac{7}{4} \times a^2 \times \cot \left ( \frac{\pi}{7} \right )\\[1em] \text{Area} &= 3.634 a^2\\ P &= n \times a\\ P &= 7 \times a\\ \end{align*}

Using the heptagon calculator

Let's calculate the area of the heptagon with a side of 8 cm to understand the heptagon calculator usage.

  1. Enter the length of the side, a=8 cma = 8\ \text{cm}.

  2. The perimeter of the heptagon is 8 cm×7=56 cm8\ \text{cm}\times 7 = 56\ \text{cm}.

  3. The area of the heptagon is

Area=74×a2×cot(π7)Area=3.634×82=232.57 cm2\scriptsize \qquad \begin{align*} \text{Area} &= \frac{7}{4} \times a^2 \times \cot \left ( \frac{\pi}{7} \right )\\[1em] \text{Area} &= 3.634 \times 8^2 = 232.57 \text{ cm}^2 \end{align*}
  1. The internal angle, α\alpha and exterior angle, β\beta are 128.57128.57^\circ and 51.4351.43^\circ

  2. The radius of the circumcircle is

R=a2sin(π7)R=82sin(π7)=9.219 cm\scriptsize \qquad \begin{align*} R &= \frac{a} {2\sin(\frac{\pi}{7})}\\[1em] R &= \frac{8} {2\sin(\frac{\pi}{7})} = 9.219 \text{ cm} \end{align*}
  1. The radius of the incircle is
r=a2tan(π7)r=82tan(π7)=8.306 cm\scriptsize \qquad \begin{align*} r &= \frac{a} {2\tan(\frac{\pi}{7})}\\[1em] r &= \frac{8} {2\tan(\frac{\pi}{7})} = 8.306 \text{ cm} \end{align*}

What do you mean by a heptagon?

A heptagon is a 7-sided polygon. It is also known as septagon. The prefix in the word "hept-" and "sept-" are of Greek and Latin origin, respectively.

How many sides do a heptagon have?

A heptagon has 7 sides. Its figure has 7 sides and 7 angles. The angle between each side of a regular heptagon is 128.57°.

How do I find the area of a heptagon?

To find the area of a heptagon:

  1. Find the square of the side of the heptagon.
  2. Multiply the square by 3.634 to obtain the area of the heptagon.
