Polygon: A closed figure with three or more sides is called a polygon.
The sum (S) of the measures of the interior angles of a polygon is given by: S=180(n­2)
n = # of sides
Example: A decagon is a 10 sided polygon. What is the sum of all of the interior angles in a decagon?
Ex: Determine the missing measure in the figure shown. 135°

Sometimes we have the find the number of sides (n) given the sum (S)
Ex: Determine the number of sides of a polygon whose interior angles add up to 1980°

Regular and Irregular polygons
When all sides are equal, it is called a regular polygon. A polygon where all sides are not equal is called irregular.
Examples of regular polygons:
In regular polygons, all interior angles are equal.

To find the measure of EACH interior angle in a regular polygon, Each interior angle in a regular polygon = S , where S = sum, n = # of n sides
Example: For Superhero Day, Ms. MacDonald has designed a crest for her costume. The hexagon in the crest is regular. Determine the measure of each angle in the hexagon.

Example: Determine the measure of each interior angle in a regular pentadecagon (15 sided polygon).
Sometimes, we have to find n (# of sides) given the interior angle
Each interior angle = Example: The measure of each interior angle in a regular polygon is 144°. How many sides does the polygon have?
