In geometry, a hendecagon (also undecagon[1]) is an 11-sided polygon. The name "undecagon" is often seen as incorrect, but the matter is up for debate. The Greek prefix 'hen', is preferable to the Latin 'uni' or 'un' [2]. A regular hendecagon has internal angles of 147.27 degrees. The area of a regular hendecagon with side length $a$ is given by

$A=\frac{11}{4}\cot\left(\frac{\pi}{11}\right)a^2\simeq9.36a^2$

A regular hendecagon is not constructible with compass and straightedge.

## Use in coinage

The Canadian dollar coin, the loonie, is patterned on a regular hendecagonal prism, as is the Indian two-rupee coin.

It was also patterned on the Susan B. Anthony dollar of the United States from 1979-1981 and again in 1999.

## Related shapes

The hendecagon shares the same set of 11 vertices with four regular hendecagrams, {11/2}, {11/3}, {11/4}, {11/5}.

## Petrie polygons

The regular hendecagon is the Petrie polygon for 10-dimensional uniform polytopes of the simplex family, projected in a skew orthogonal projection.[1][2]
