The surface area is equal to the area of the base plus the area of the 8
isosceles triangles on the sides.The base consist of 8 isosceles triangles
A = Ab + A(sides).
Ac = 360/N = 360/8 = 45Deg = central angle.
Base angles = (180 - 45) / 2 = 67.5deg
tan67.5 = h/(b/2) = 1.5/(b/2),
b/2 = 1.5 / tan67.5 = 0.62,
b = 2 * 0.62 = 1.24yds = base of each
Ab = (b*h/2)N = (1.24*1.5/2)8 = 7.44sq
Area of Sides:
Altitude = 2.5*sin67.5 = 2.31YDS.
Area of sides = (b*h/2)N =
(1.24*2.31/2)8 = 11.5 sq. yds.
Surface Area = 7.44 + 11.5 = 18.9 sq yds.
Area of the sides:
The height(altitude) is GIVEN: 2.5 yds.
S = h/sin67.5 = 2.5 / sin67.5 - 2.71
yds = length of each side.
As = (b*h/2)N = (1.24*2.5/2)8 = 12.4sq yds.= Area of sides.
Surface Area = Ab + As = 7.44 + 12.4
= 19.84sq yds.
