Objectives
Classify polygons based on their sides and
angles. Find and use the measures of interior
and exterior angles of polygons.

Vocabulary
side of a polygon vertex of a polygon diagonal reg
ular polygon concave convex
5
In Lesson 2-4, you learned the definition of a
polygon. Now you will learn about the parts of a
polygon and about ways to classify polygons.
6
Each segment that forms a polygon is a side of
the polygon. The common endpoint of two sides is
a vertex of the polygon. A segment that connects
any two nonconsecutive vertices is a diagonal.
7
You can name a polygon by the number of its
sides. The table shows the names of some common
polygons.

15
All the sides are congruent in an equilateral
polygon. All the angles are congruent in an
equiangular polygon. A regular polygon is one
that is both equilateral and equiangular. If a
polygon is not regular, it is called irregular.
16
A polygon is concave if any part of a diagonal
contains points in the exterior of the polygon.
If no diagonal contains points in the exterior,
then the polygon is convex. A regular polygon is
always convex.

To find the sum of the interior angle measures of
a convex polygon, draw all possible diagonals
from one vertex of the polygon. This creates a
set of triangles. The sum of the angle measures
of all the triangles equals the sum of the angle
measures of the polygon.

In each convex polygon, the number of triangles
formed is two less than the number of sides n. So
the sum of the angle measures of all these
triangles is (n 2)180.
