    what is the length of any diagonal of a regular pentagon with a side of 20mm

  • geometry -

    first find the size of each interior angle
    angle = 180(5-2)/5 = 108°

    let the length of the diagonal be x
    by cosine law
    x^2 = 20^2 + 20^2 -2(20)(20)cos 108°

    I am sure you can finish it from there.
