A dodecagon is a polygon that has 12 sides.[2] A regular dodecagon is a 12 sided regular polygon. The variable s in the formula in table 1 is the length of one of the sides of a regular dodecagon.

r=(1/2)(2+square root of 3)sInradius: The radius of the incircle.
R=(1/2)(square root of 2+square root of 3)sCircumradius: The radius of the circumcircle.
