An icosagon is a shape with 20 sides and 20 corners. It has interior angles of 162 and exterior angles of 18.

## Regular icosagon

The regular icosagon has Schläfli symbol {20}, and can also be constructed as a truncated decagon, t{10}, or a twice-truncated pentagon, tt{5}.

### Area

The amount of space a regular icosagon takes up is

${\text{Area}}={5}a^{2}(1+{\sqrt {5}}+{\sqrt {5+2{\sqrt {5}}}}).$ a is the length of one of its sides.

## Uses

The Big Wheel on the popular US game show The Price Is Right has an icosagonal cross-section.

The Globe, the outdoor theater used by William Shakespeare's acting company, was discovered to have been built on an icosagonal foundation when a partial excavation was done in 1989.

As a golygonal path, the swastika is considered to be an irregular icosagon. A regular square, pentagon, and icosagon can completely fill a plane vertex.

## Dissection

Coxeter states that every parallel-sided 2m-gon can be divided into m(m-1)/2 rhombs. For the icosagon, m=10, and it can be divided into 45: 5 squares and 4 sets of 10 rhombs. This decomposition is based on a Petrie polygon projection of a 10-cube, with 45 of 11520 faces.  The list A006245 enumerates the number of solutions as 18,410,581,880, including up to 20-fold rotations and chiral forms in reflection.
