The largest exterior angle measure is 120o. It is the exterior measure of an equilateral triangle (which is a regular polygon).

A regular polygon with an exterior angle of40O is a nonagon, and has 9 sides.

Interior angle 156 degrees Exterior angle 24 degrees 360/24 = 15 sides

The measure of the exterior angle of a 11-sided polygon = 360⁰/11 = 32 72/99⁰ = 32 8/11⁰

exterior angle of regular polygon is always 360 divided by number of sides, so number of sides = 360 divided by exterior angle, in this case 360/32.72 ie 11.

The interior angle of a polygon is the angle formed by two adjacent sides of a polygon where the angle lies inside the area formed by the polygon. The exterior angle is that formed by one of these sides and the line formed by extending the other side. Consequently, External angle = 180 deg - Internal angle. Because they form supplementary angles, it does not matter which of the two sides you extend.

An exterior angle of a polygon is the supplement of the corresponding interior angle. The exterior angle is the angle between an extended sides of the polygon and the next side of the polygon.

The exterior angle of any polygon, including a tricontakaitrigon, is the angle formed between one side of the polygon and the extension of an adjacent side. The measure of the exterior angle of a regular tricontakaitrigon is 2 degrees, as each interior angle of this polygon measures 178 degrees.

The size of the angle would depend on the shape and number of sides the polygon has. It is called the exterior angle.

The interior angle of a polygon and its adjacent exterior angle can never be complementary.

A polygon is a closed plane figure bounded by straight sides. Since it is a closed surface, it has an interior (inside) and an exterior (outside). The interior angle of a polygon is the angle formed by two adjacent sides such that the angle is facing the interior of the polygon.
