## What is the area of a pentagon?

A Pentagon is a **5-sided** plane **figure** that comes in the **category** of a **polygon**. This **specific** figure **covers** a specific **region** under its **boundaries** that makes up the **area** of a **pentagon**. In simple **words**, the region that a pentagon **covers** is called the area of that **pentagon**.

Depending on the measures of the **sides** of this **figure**, pentagons are **divided** into two main types mentioned **below**.

**Regular Pentagon**: A pentagon with the same lengths for all sides is called a regular pentagon.**Irregular Pentagon**: A pentagon that has different lengths for all its sides is called an irregular pentagon.

In this **figure**, **5** sides are **connected** side by **side** with each other. As a **result**, it makes the angle **540** degrees in total. The **area** of a pentagon is also calculated in **square units**. It means that **if** the measurements are given in **meters**, the area will be **written** in square meters.

### Area of a pentagon formula

To find the area of a pentagon, you only have to be familiar with the formula used for this purpose. Don’t you know what the formula is? Here is the formula written in the following.

Area of a pentagon = a^{2}/4 ✖ √(25 + 10 5) square units

Here:

- “a” represents the length of the side of a pentagon.

### How to find the area of a pentagon?

If you are **familiar **with the **above** formula and **basic** mathematical **operations**, you can easily **find** the area of a pentagon. Here is a **solved** example for the **sake **of your **understanding**.

**Example 1:**

Find the area of a pentagon if the measure of the length of its side is 7 meters.

**Solution:**

As we know,

Area of a pentagon = a^{2}/4 ✖ √(25 + 10 √5) square units

So, we have to put the given values in this formula only.

Area of a pentagon = (7)^{2}/4 ✖ √(25 + 10 √5) m^{2}

By solving,

= 43.01 m^{2}

### How to use the area of a pentagon calculator?
