The area of a octagon can be calculated using the following formula: if you know the perimeter and the apothem.

If you know the length of the perimeter in a octagon and the apothem, you can calculate its area using the following formula:

$$"area" = (p * a)/2 $$

$$p = "perimeter value"$$

$$a = "apothem: distance from the center to the closest point in the figure"$$

It is a geometric figure with 8 sides, all the sides have equal length. Also a regular octagon has all the same angles. All regular octagon look the same.

An irregular octagon can have vitually infinite posibles shapes, Despite this all have 8 sides.

The apothem it´s the distance between the center of the geometric figure and the closest point in the figure to the center.

It is the space of the internal surface in a figure, it is limited for the perimeter. Also, the area can be calculated in a plane of two dimensions.

It is a representation of a rule or a general principle using letters. *( Algebra, A. Baldor)*

When describing formulas in plural, it is also valid to say "formulae".
