Unit 2 Polygons In The Plane

2
Polygons Definition: A closed figure formed by a finite number of coplanar segments so that each segment intersects exactly two others, but only at their endpoints. These figures are not polygons These figures are polygons

3
**Classifications of a Polygon**

Convex: No line containing a side of the polygon contains a point in its interior Concave: A polygon for which there is a line containing a side of the polygon and a point in the interior of the polygon.

4
**Classifications of a Polygon**

Regular: A convex polygon in which all interior angles have the same measure and all sides are the same length Irregular: Two sides (or two interior angles) are not congruent.

5
**Polygon Names 3 sides Triangle 4 sides Quadrilateral 5 sides Pentagon**

Hexagon 7 sides Heptagon 8 sides Octagon 9 sides Nonagon 10 sides Decagon Dodecagon 12 sides n sides n-gon

6
**Convex Polygon Formulas…..**

Diagonals of a Polygon: A segment connecting nonconsecutive vertices of a polygon For a convex polygon with n sides: The sum of the interior angles is The measure of one interior angle is The sum of the exterior angles is The measure of one exterior angle is

7
**Examples….. Sum of the measures of the interior angles of a 11-gon is**

The measure of an exterior angle of a regular octagon is The number of sides of regular polygon with exterior angle 72 ° is The measure of an interior angle of a regular polygon with 30 sides
