Week of February 26

February 17th, 2018 by

The sum of the interior angles of a polygon can be determined easily by dividing the polygon into triangles as demonstrated in the image below. The sum of the interior angles of a triangle is always 180 degrees. If a polygon contains 2 triangles, the sum of its interior angles will be 360 degrees. If a polygon contains 3 triangles, the sum of its interior angles will be 540 degrees and so on. The number of triangles multiplied by 180 will equal the sum of the interior angles of the polygon.
