The formula for finding the length of a side of a regular polygon is:

where

A = area of the polygon

L = length of a side of the polygon

n = number of sides

To find the length of the side of a regular polygon, all you have to do is divide the area of the polygon by the number of sides. In the case of a regular polygon with a known area, that number is  2.
