Regular Polygons

Regular Polygons: Level 3 Challenges


The diagram above shows a regular hexagon H3{ H }_{3 } with area HH which has six right triangles inscribed in it. Let the area of the shaded region be SS, then what is the ratio H:S?H:S?

Above figure shows a unit square ABCDABCD.

If the area of the octagon EFGHIJKLEFGHIJKL (in blue) can be expressed as 1a\dfrac{1}{a} , find aa.

As shown in the image above, a pentagon, hexagon and decagon are inscribed in three congruent circles, and their endpoints are connected to form a triangle. If the radii of each of the circles is 11 and the area of the triangle formed by the three polygons can be written as abc\frac{\sqrt{a}-b}{c}, where aa, bb and cc are coprime integers, what is a+b+ca+b+c?

We can make "pencilogons" by aligning multiple, identical pencils end-of-tip to start-of-tip together without leaving any gaps, as shown above, so that the enclosed area forms a regular polygon (the example above left is an 8-pencilogon).

Hazri wants to make an nn-pencilogon using nn identical pencils with pencil tips of angle 7.7^\circ. After he aligns n18n-18 pencils, he finds out the gap between the two ends is too small to fit in another pencil.

So, in order to complete the pencilogon, he has to sharpen all the nn pencils so that the angle of all the pencil tips becomes (7m)(7-m)^\circ.

Find the value of m+nm+n.

(Assume the pencils have a rectangular body and have their tips resembling isosceles triangles)

Greedy Garisht is celebrating his birthday with 6 of his friends. His mother baked him a birthday cake in the shape of a regular hexagon. Wanting to keep most of the cake, he makes cuts linking the midpoints of every 2 adjacent sides, and distributes these 6 slices to his friends. What proportion of the cake does he have left for himself?
