**Important Terms A VERTEX is the point of intersection of two sides F A**

10/17/2007 POLYGONS Important Terms A VERTEX is the point of intersection of two sides CONSECUTIVE VERTICES are two endpoints of any side. F A B C D E A segment whose endpoints are two nonconsecutive vertices is called a DIAGONAL. Sides that share a vertex are called CONSECUTIVE SIDES.
