The great enneagram, or geng, is a non-convex polygon with 9 sides. Its created by taking the third stellation of an enneagon. A regular great enneagram has equal sides and equal angles.

It is one of two regular 9-sided star polygons, the other being the enneagram.

Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

Coordinates for a regular great enneagram of edge length 2sin(4π/9), centered at the origin, are:

  • (1, 0),
  • (cos(2π/9), ±sin(2π/9)),
  • (cos(4π/9), ±sin(4π/9)),
  • (–1/2, ±3/2),
  • (cos(8π/9), ±sin(8π/9)).
