Question details

Q2 - An Upper Bound for Circumference In lecture, we obtained a lower bound for the unit circles circumference by inscribing a poly gon and then calculating its perimeter. Here, you will find an upper bound by circumscribing a polygon and then calculating its perimeter. a) Find the difference between inscribed polygons and circumscribed polygons. (You dont need to write anything down for this part.) b) Find the perimeter of an equilateral triangle that circumscribes the unit circle. Leave your answers in terms of trigonometric functions. Include a detailed drawing in your solution c) Generalize your result to find the perimeter of a regular n-gon that circumscribes the unit circle.
