The internal angles of a regular pentagon are 108°.

(If you need proof I like to use external angles, rather than memorizing an internal angle formula: 360°/5 = 72°

=> internal angle = 180°-72° = 108°)

Drawing a line from B to E will form an obtuse Isosceles triangle with A forming the obtuse angle. Angle A is not affected, and remains 108°.

The sum of all the angles of a triangle are equal to 180°, and our triangle is isosceles, so half the remaining amount (after subtracting angle A) is equal to the two acute angles (ABE and BEA).

1/2(180°-108° = 72°)

= 36°

Can you draw a regular pentagon with one diagonal through that pentagon at any two possible points?

A regular pentagon can always be drawn through any two given points with those two points as any two vertices of the pentagon. (Diagonals of a pentagon connect two vertices which are not next to each other.)

Where are the lines of symmetry for a pentagon?

In a regular pentagon, the lines of symmetry are drawn from each vertex to the midpoint of the edge directly opposite the vertex, so there are five in all.

How do you draw a pentagon with 3 right angles?

First you draw a square. A square has 4 right angles. If you draw a line above one of the right angles and rub out the angle which you have drawn a line above you have a pentagon with 3 right angles.

Is it possible to show a drawn animated movie in 3D?

This depends if it is an animated movie, which has been been drawn and animated on a computer, then yes.But if it has been drawn as 2D as a flat image, from a downwards angle, then no.If it has been drawn from an angle then it is slightly possible.

What is auto-graphic projection in tachnical drawing?

In first angle auto graphic projection the planed, view is drawn exactly below the front elevation. What is viewed from the left is drawn from the right side of the front, it is drawn in the 1st angle and 3rd angle.

How many diagonals can be drawn in a 5-sided polygon?

A 5-sided polygon is called a pentagon. You can draw up to 5 diagonals in a pentagon.

What is a square in a right angle?

The square drawn in a right angle simply is to indicate that the angle is, indeed, 90 degrees.

Is a pentagon convex?

A regular pentagon is convex. By taking a regular pentagon and shortening or lengthening one or more sides, an infinite number of possible convex pentagons can be created. A convex polygon is defined as a polygon such that all internal angles are less than or equal to 180 degrees, and a line segment drawn between any two vertices remains inside the polygon. It is possible to have non-convex (concave) pentagons; there are infinite number possible ways to do this, too.

What is different between 1st angle and 3rd angle?

Basically its just where you position the views of the main object, in first angle projection, if you view the object from the left, the view is drawn to the right of the object, in third angle projection, its drawn on the viewing side.
