1 Aim: How do we find angle measures in polygons? A polygon is a closed figure whose sides are line segments that intersect only at their endpoints. In a regular polygon, all the angles have the same measures and all the sides have the same length. Polygons can be indentified by the number of their sides Regular Polygons Polygons Not Polygons

2 Aim: How do we find angle measures in polygons? Practice- Is the shape a polygon, a regular polygon or not a polygon? 1. Not a Polygon – The sides are not line segments Regular Polygon – All the sides and angles have the same measure. Polygon – All the sides are line segments.

3 Aim: How do we find angle measures in polygons?

4 A vertex is a point where two sides meet. The interior angles of a polygon are the angles inside the polygon. A diagonal of a polygon is a line segment that joins two nonconsecutive vertices. What is the sum of the measures of the interior angles of a quadrilateral? Vertex Interior Angles Diagonal Since the quadrilateral is made up of 2 triangles, the sum the angles is 2(180 o ) = 360 o

5 Aim: How do we find angle measures in polygons? You can use triangles to find these sum of the angle measures in other figures.

6 Aim: How do we find angle measures in polygons? 1. Find the sum of the measures of the interior angles of octagon. An octagon has 8 sides, so n=8. (n-2)180 (8-2)180 (6)180 1,080 o 2. Find the sum of the measures of the interior angles of an 11-gon. A 11-gon has 11 sides, so n=11. (n-2)180 (11-2)180 (9)180 1,620 o Sum of an angle measures in an n-gon = (n-2) 180

8 Aim: How do we find angle measures in polygons? Remember, in a regular polygon, all the angles have the same measure. Hexagon Regular Hexagon 6) Find the measure of one angle in a regular hexagon. (n-2)180 (6-2)180 (4) o 720 ÷ 6 = 120 o 120 o

9 Aim: How do we find angle measures in polygons? Measure of one angle in a regular n-gon = (n-2) 180. n Measure of one angle in a regular n-gon = (n-2) 180. n Sum of an angle measures in an n-gon = (n-2) 180 7) Find the measure of one angle in a regular octagon. A regular octagon has 8 sides, so n=8. = (n-2)180 n = (8-2)180 8 = (6)180 8 = = 135 o One angle in a regular octagon is 135 o. 8) Find the measure of one angle in a regular 14-gon. Round to the nearest tenth of a degree. A regular 14-gon has 14 sides, so n=14. = (n-2)180 n = (14-2) = (12) = = o One angle in a regular 14-gon is o.

11 Aim: How do we find angle measures in polygons? Indentify the Polygon 12) The sum of the measures of the interior angles in a polygon is 1,440 o. What type of polygon is it? 1440 = (n-2) = 180n = 180n = n Sum of an angle measures in an n-gon = (n-2) 180 A polygon interior angles that has a sum of 1440 o is a decagon.
