Top surface of a raised platform is in the shape of a regular octagon as shown in the figure. Find the area of the octagonal surface.
Given: Octagon having eight equal sides, each 5 m
Construction: Divided the octagon in 3 figures, two trapeziums whose parallel and perpendicular sides are 11 m and 4 m respectively and third figure is rectangle having length and breadth 11 m and 5 m respectively.
Now Area of two trapeziums = 2 x 1/2 × (a + b) h
= (11 + 5) × 4
= 64 sq. m
And Area of rectangle = length × breadth
= 11 × 5
= 55 sq. m
∴ Total area of octagon = 64 + 55
= 119 sq. m
