**Polygons**The word ‘polygon’ is a Greek word. Poly means many and gon means angles.**Examples of Polygons**Polygons**These are not Polygons**Polygons**Terminology**Side: One of the line segments that make up a polygon. Vertex: Point where two sides meet. Polygons**Vertex**Side Polygons**Interior angle: An angle formed by two adjacent sides**inside the polygon. • Exterior angle: An angle formed by two adjacent sides outside the polygon. Polygons**Exterior angle**Interior angle Polygons**Let us recapitulate**Exterior angle Vertex Side Diagonal Interior angle Polygons**Types of Polygons**• Equiangular Polygon: a polygon in which all of the angles are equal • Equilateral Polygon: a polygon in which all of the sides are the same length Polygons**Regular Polygon: a polygon where all the angles are equal**and all of the sides are the same length. They are both equilateral and equiangular Polygons**Examples of Regular Polygons**Polygons**A convex polygon: A polygon whose each of the interior angle**measures less than 180°. If one or more than one angle in a polygon measures more than 180° then it is known as concave polygon. (Think: concave has a "cave" in it) Polygons**IN TERIOR ANGLES OF A POLYGON**Polygons**Let us find the connection between the number of sides,**number of diagonals and the number of triangles of a polygon.
