a triangle

For example, figures like C and N are open figures, and figures like O and D are closed.

You are describing a polygon. Polygons can be triangles (3 sides), quadrilaterals (4 sides) etc... and some have special names. A square, for example, is a four sided polygon with all sides the same length and all angles are 90 degrees.

This describes a closed line segment. We sometimes see it called a line segment or just a segment.A segment is a part of line that contains 2 endpoints and all the points between them.

a shape. The real answer is a polygon as long as the lines do not intersect anywhere but the endpoints. It could also be called a figure.

regular polygon-all the sides are the same length and the angles have the same measurement. polygon-a closed plane figure whose sides are segments that intersect at their endpoints.

yes polygons are closed figures
