Full Answer

The interior angles in a regular decagon each equal 144 degrees in size. The area of a regular decagon is found by multiplying two and a half times the distance between any two parallel sides, then multiplying that number by the length of one side. The perimeter of a regular decagon is found by multiplying 10 times the length of one side. A three-dimensional figure with 10 faces is called a decahedron.
