Finding the Maximal Area of Bounded Polygons in a Circle
Rokach, Arie
Mathematics Teacher, v98 n7 p491-497 Mar 2005
The article deals with the area of polygons that are inscribed in a given circle. Naturally, the following question arises: Among all n-polygons that are inscribed in a given circle, which one has the biggest area? Intuitively, it may be guessed that is suitable for secondary students, and without any use id calculus, but only using very elementary knowledge of geometry. (Contains 12 figures.)
