In this mini-lesson, we'll discuss the concept of Inscribed and Circumscribed polygon and its properties. You will learn it with the help of some examples and practice questions with solution. Not that this might seem complicated here in text, but once you have instructor explain it to you in their voice and handwriting in the video, it would look much simpler.
An inscribed regular polygon is a polygon placed inside a circle such that each vertex of the polygon touches the circle. A circumscribed regular polygon is a polygon whose segments are tangent to a circle. Now take a look at and learn how to find out the area of inscribed and circumscribed polygons using the TA-CO method, in which the cut out(CO) is subtracted from the total area(TO) to get the required area. For example: in case of a circumscribed regular polygon, if a square floor of side 6m is covered by a circular shape rug, then the area of the floor uncovered by the rug is 62
– ? x (3)2
= (36 – 9?) m2
