In this worksheet, students calculate the interior angle of regular polygons.

'Interior Angles of Regular Polygons' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Maths and Numerical Reasoning

Curriculum subtopic:   2D Shapes: Triangles, Quadrilaterals and Polygons

Difficulty level:  

Worksheet Overview

Regular polygons have interior angles which are all equal to each other.

 

To work out the sum of the interior angles of a polygon, we first work out the sum of its angles by splitting it into triangles.  

We then divide this sum by the number of angles.

 

Example

Work out the interior angle of a regular hexagon.

 

Answer

The hexagon can be split into triangles.

 

 

 

There are 4 triangles inside the hexagon.

4 x 180º = 720º

 

The sum of the interior angles of a hexagon is 720º.

There are 6 equal angles inside the hexagon.

 

Each interior angle is 720º ÷ 6 = 120º
