Program to find the Area of Pentagon

Given the side of a Pentagon, the task is to find the area of the Pentagon.

Examples:

Input : a = 5
Output: Area of Pentagon: 43.0119

Input : a = 10
Output: Area of Pentagon: 172.047745

A regular pentagon is a five sided geometric shape whose all sides and angles are equal. Its interior angles are of 108 degrees each and its exterior angles are 72 degrees each. The sum of interior angles of a pentagon is 540 degrees.

pentagon



Let a be the side of Pentagon, then the formula to find the area of Pentagon given by

Area = frac{1}{4}sqrt{5left ( 5 + 2sqrt{5} 
ight )} a^{2}

C++

// C++ program to find the area of Pentagon
#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
  
// Function to find area of pentagon
float findArea(float a)
{
    float area;
    
    // Formula to find area
    area = (sqrt(5 * (5 + 2 * (sqrt(5)))) * a * a) / 4;
    
    return area;
}
  
// Driver code
int main()
{
    float a = 5;
      
    // function calling
    cout << "Area of Pentagon: " << findArea(a);
      
    return 0;

Java

// Java program to find the area of Pentagon
import java.io.*;
  
class GFG {
      
    // Function to find area of pentagon
    static float findArea(float a)
    {
        float area;
        
        // Formula to find area
        area = (float)(Math.sqrt(5 * (5 + 2 
                * (Math.sqrt(5)))) * a * a) / 4;
        
        return area;
    }
      
    // Driver code
    public static void main (String[] args) 
    {
        float a = 5;
          
        System.out.println("Area of Pentagon: " 
                               + findArea(a));
    }
}
