The following formulae for regular polygons should be known:

 

Exterior angle = 360º ÷ number of sides

 

Interior angle = 180º - exterior angle

 

Sum of interior angles = 180 x (number of sides - 2)

 

Example

A regular polygon has an interior angle of 165.6º.

How many sides does it have?

 

Answer

Exterior angle = 180 - interior angle = 180 - 165.6 = 14.4º

No. of sides = 360 ÷ exterior angle = 360 ÷ 14.4 = 25
