Maximum Polygon Area Ascertainment (Posted on 2023-05-30) Difficulty: 3 of 5
• P is a convex, near regular 2023-sided polygon.
• Precisely 2022 of its sides have length 1, but the remaining side has a length different from 1.

Determine the maximum area of the polygon.

My first thought is that P is very close to a half-circle, with twice the radius and twice the area of a regular 2023-sided polygon.  I can't do the math right now, though.  And I would not be surprised if I was wrong.
