The length of the polygonal spiral is found by noting that the ratio of inradius to circumradius of a regular polygon of sides is

\frac{r}{R}= \frac{\cot(\frac{180}{n})}{\csc(\frac{180}{n})}= \cos(\frac{180}{n})

The total length of the spiral for an n-gon with side length is therefore J= \frac{s}{2[1-\cos(\frac{180}{n})]}

Consider the solid region obtained by filling in subsequent triangles which the spiral encloses. The area of this region, illustrated above for n-gons of side length , is A= \frac{s^2}{4}\cot(\frac{180}{n})

The shaded triangular polygonal spiral is a rep-4-tile.
