A regular octagon is a closed, 8-sided, geometrical figure where all sides are of the same length and all internal angles at each vertex are of 135 degrees. The common dimensions of an octagon are side length (s), height (h), main diagonal (d), minor diagonal (c), area (A) and perimeter (p).

Since all its dimensions are interrelated, they can be calculated with just one of those dimensions as a reference.
