Regular Polygons – Apothem and Perimeter

Explore the relationship between the apothem (labeled as 1 unit in length) and the perimeter of regular polygons of 3 to 40 sides. Select the number of sides of the polygon and "open" the polygon to lay the sides as a single segment and show the perimeter distance. Also show or hide the triangular regions inside the polygons or shade the polygon area.
