**6-1 The Polygon Angle-Sum Theorems**

2
**Naming Polygons Polygons are named by the number of sides they have.**

Type of polygon 3 Triangle 4 Quadrilateral 5 Pentagon 6 Hexagon 7 Heptagon 8 Octagon 9 Nonagon 10 Decagon 12 Dodecagon n n-gon

3
**Finding a Polygon Angle Sum**

Polygon Angle-Sum Theorem: The sum of the measures of the interior angles of an n-gon is (n – 2)180. What is the sum of the interior angle measures of a heptagon?

4
** What is the sum of the interior angle measures of a 17-gon?**

5
**Finding the Number of Sides of a Polygon**

The sum of the interior angle measures of a polygon is How many sides does this polygon have? The sum of the interior angle measures of a polygon is How many sides does this polygon have?

6
**Using the Polygon Angle-Sum Theorem**

What is mY in pentagon TODAY?

7
What is mG?

8
Regular Polygons An equilateral polygon is a polygon with all sides congruent. An equiangular polygon is a polygon with all angles congruent. A regular polygon is a polygon that is BOTH equilateral and equiangular.

9
**Corollary to the Angle-Sum Theorem**

The measure of each interior angle of a regular n-gon is What is the measure of each interior angle in a regular hexagon?

10
** What is the measure of each interior angle in a regular nonagon?**

11
Exterior Angles You can draw exterior angles at any vertex of a polygon. Polygon Exterior Angle-Sum Theorem: The sum of the measures of the exterior angles of a polygon (one at each vertex) is 360.
