Area of a regular polygon is the sum of area of a triangles it contains. Area of a triangle is
S=\frac{1}{2}absin\gamma,
where a and b - triangle sides, and gamma is angle between those sides. For triangle in regular polygon a and b are circumradius, and gamma is 360/n, where n - number of sides. Thus area of polygon is
S=n\frac{1}{2}r^2sin(\frac{360}{n}).
Calculator also displays area of the circumcircle, for reference
S=\pi r^2
