Polygons Polygons A many sided figure The cross section of a brilliant-cut diamond forms a pentagon. The most beautiful and valuable diamonds have precisely cut angles
that maximize the amount of light they reflect. A pentagon is a type of polygon. Prefixes are used to name different types of polygons. Polygon a closed plane figure formed by three or more segments.
Regular polygon a polygon with congruent sides and angles. Prefixes used to name polygons: tri-, quad-, penta-, hexa-, hepta-, octa-, nona-, decaPolygons are named (classified) based on the number of sides. Polygons Properties of polygons, interior angles of polygons including triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, heptagons,
octagons, nonagons, and decagons. Properties of Triangles Triangle 3-sided polygon The sum of the angles in any triangle is 180 (triangle sum theorem) The formula we use to find the sum of the interior angles of any polygon comes from the number of triangles in a figure
sum of the interior angles of a polygon is given by the formula 180(n-2). A polygon is called a REGULAR when all the sides are congruent and all the angles are congruent. The picture shown to the left is that of a Regular Pentagon. We know that
to find the sum of its interior angles we substitute n = 5 in the formula and get: 180(5 -2) = 180(3) = 540 Regular triangles Equilateral All sides are the same length (congruent) and all interior angles are the same size (congruent).
To find the measure of the interior angles, we know that the sum of all the angles equal 180, and there are three angles. So, the measure of the interior angles of an equilateral triangle is 60. Quadrilaterals squares All sides are the same length
(congruent) and all interior angles are the same size (congruent) To find the measure of the interior angles, we know that the sum of the angles equal 360, and there are four angles, so the measure of the interior angles are 90. Pentagon a 5-sided
polygon To find the sum of the interior angles of a pentagon, we divide the pentagon into triangles. There are three triangles and because the sum of each triangle is 180 we get 540, so the measure of the interior angles of a regular
pentagon is 540 Hexagon a 6-sided polygon To find the sum of the interior angles of a hexagon we divide the hexagon into triangles. There are four triangles and because the sum of the angles in a triangle is
180, we get 720, so the measure of the interior angles of a regular hexagon is 720. Octagon an 8-sided polygon All sides are the same length (congruent) and all interior angles are the same size (congruent). What is the sum of the angles in a regular octagon?
Nonagon a 9-sided polygon All sides are the same length (congruent) and all interior angles are the same size (congruent). What is the sum of the interior angles of a regular nonagon?
Decagon a 10-sided polygon All sides are the same length (congruent) and all interior angles are the same size (congruent). What is the sum of the interior angles of a regular decagon?
Using the pentagon example, we can come up with a formula that works for all polygons. 5 sides, and that you can form 3 Notice that a pentagon has triangles by connecting the vertices. Thats 2 less than the number of sides. If we represent
the number of sides of a polygon n, then the number of triangles you can form is (n-2). as Since each triangle contains 180, that gives us the formula: sum of interior angles =
180(n-2) Warning ! Look at the pentagon to the right. Do angle E and angle B look like they have the same measures? Youre right---they dont. This pentagon is not a regular pentagon.
If the angles of a polygon do not all have the same measure, then we cant find the measure of any one of the angles just by knowing their sum. Using the Formula Example 1: Find the number of degrees in the sum of the interior angles of an octagon. An octagon has 8 sides. So n = 8. Using our formula, that gives us 180(8-2) = 180(6) =
1080 Example 2: How many sides does a polygon have if the sum of its interior angles is 720? Since, this time, we know the number of degrees, we set the formula equal to 720, and solve for n. 180(n-2) = 720 set the formula = 720 n-2=4 divide both sides by 180
n= 6 add 2 to both sides Names of Polygons Triangle Quadrilateral Pentagon Hexagon

A square has 4 congruent sides and 4 right angles. A rectangle has 4 right angles. A parallelogram has 2 pairs of parallel sides. A rhombus
has 4 congruent sides. A kite has 2 sets of adjacent sides that are the same length (congruent) and one set of opposite angles
that are congruent. Algebra Algebra in in Geometry Geometry Applying Geometric Properties Algebra can be used to solve many problems in geometry. Using variables and
algebraic expressions to represent unknown measures makes solving many problems easier. Find the sum of interior angles using the formula. 180(n - 2) = 180(4 2) = 180(2) = 360 Set the sum of the angles equal to the total. 120 + 50 + 80 + x = 360 250 + x = 360
250 250 + x = 360 -250 x = 110 Remember, a regular polygon has congruent sides and congruent angles. Given the regular pentagon at the left, what are the measures of the interior angles. (use the formula) 180(n 2) =
180(5 2) = 180(3) = 540 # of angles = 5 540/5 = 108 Each angle in a regular pentagon measures 108 Using geometry to solve word problems. Remember, draw a picture. Quadrilateral STUV has angle measures of:
