Sum of Interior Angles = (Number of Sides -2) • 180 degrees Number of Sides = (Sum of Interior Angles / 180 degrees) + 2 Number of Sides = (1,080 / 180) +2 Number of Sides = 6 + 2 Number of Sides = 8 a) It is an octagon b) Each interior angle = 1,080 / 8 = 135 degrees c) Each Exterior Angle = (360 degrees) ÷ (Number of Sides) Each Exterior Angle = 360/8 Each Exterior Angle = 45 degrees Source: http://www.1728.org/polygon.htm
