A pentagon is a polygon with 5 sides, and the sum of its interior angles is 540 degrees.

The values in the table above assume a regular polygon as in the picture. In a regular polygon, all angles and sides are equal, which means that a perfect circle can be drawn across all the vertices. The radius of this circle is called the circumradius, and is denoted **r** in the calculations above.

The more sides the regular polygon has, the more similar to a circle it becomes. As a result, the circumference gets closer and closer to 2 × π × r (≈ 6.283 r), and the area gets closer and closer to π × r^{2} (≈ 3.1415 r^{2}).
