In geometry, a tridecagon (or triskaidecagon) is a polygon with 13 sides and angles.

A regular tridecagon is represented by Schläfli symbol {13}.

Regular tridecagon

The measure of each internal angle of a regular tridecagon is approximately 152.308 degrees, and the area with side length a is given by

A = \frac{13}{4}a^2 \cot \frac{\pi}{13} \simeq 13.1858\,a^2.

Numismatic use

The regular tridecagon is used as the shape of the Czech 20 korun coin.[1]
