A regular pentagon has all sides the same length. A pentagon has 5 sides. Its perimeter is the sum of its side_lengths which is 5 x side_length → ratio side_length : perimeter = 1 x side_length : 5 x side_length = 1 : 5

There is no simple answer. For an equilateral triangle it is 6.9282/s where s is the length of each side. For a square it is 4/s A regular pentagon: 2.9062/s A regular hexagon: 2.3094/s and so on. The ratio for a circle is 2/r where r is the radius. For irregular polygons there is no rule.

The largest angle is

Only if they both have the same ratio of length to width. Since every square has the same ratio of length to width ( it's 1 ), all squares are similar. Gee, when you think about it, every regular polygon is similar to every other regular polygon with the same number of sides. I never realized that.

Area ratio = (edge-length ratio)2 Volume ratio = (edge-length ratio)3 Volume ratio = (area ratio)3/2

Given the radius R (distance from the center to a vertex), the area of a regular pentagon is given by:R25sin(2pi/5)----------------2So, since the rest of the formula is a constant, to determine the ratio, you just need the ratio of:52 : 72= 25 : 49, or 1 : 1.96, or (backwards) 0.51 : 1

It is the tangent ratio.

there is a correlation in the ratio between the arm length and the leg length. the ratio is 1.556 inches.

The length and breadth of our National Flag is in the ratio of 3 : 2.

Here's how to do that: 1). Find its length. 2). Find its perimeter. 3). Divide (its length) by (its perimeter). The quotient is the ratio of its length to its perimeter.
