How can yo find the scale factor from one polygon to the other of two similar polygons?

cont the angle then multiply by 77


What is a simular polygon?

Two polygons are similar if they meet the following criteria. They must have the same number of sides. Each vertex of one polygon has a corresponding vertex on the other polygon with same angle measurement. Each side on one polygon is proportional to a corresponding side on the other one by the same scalar multiple. If the two polygons are triangles, then if angle criteria is satisfied the side proportion will automatically be satisfied. The converse is true as well. For other polygons, both sides and angles must be tested. An example would be a square and a rhombus.


Is a polygon is an octagon?

Polygon means many sides. Octagon mean eight sides. Not all polygons are octagons, but all octagons are polygons. Examples of other polygons are triangles, squares, parallelograms, rhombuses, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons, decagons


What does a power polygon look like?

From what I have been able to find out (using my daughter's homework) is that "Power Polygons" are any "normal" polygon that can be combined with another "normal" polygon to form another, different looking polygon (a mega-polygon, I guess?)that you can then divide up so you can see the individual "Power Polygon" pieces. Perhaps the name "Power Polygons" is derived from the fact that these polygons have the power to create other polygons. Logically then a "Power Polygon" is, really, just any polygon, just with a new, exciting, and high tech sounding name.


Why is the triangle the most rigid polygon?

The triangle is the most rigid polygon because amongst the other polygons, it has the least amount of sides.

If to polygons are similar how can you find the scale factor?

You divide a length of one polygon by the corresponding length in the other polygon. Any length will do, as long as you use the corresponding length in both.


When a polygon can be constructed by using a combination if other polygons its called?

Since any polygon can be constructed from a combination of other polygons, I would call this rule a "trivial property of polygons".


Is regular polygons also similar?

-- All regular (equilateral) triangles are similar. -- All squares are similar. -- All pentagons are similar. -- All hexagons are similar. . . . etc. Any regular polygon is similar to all other regular polygons with the same number of sides.


What is a polygon that can be divided into simpler polygons?

Any polygon other than a triangle can be divided into simpler polygons. They can all be divided into triangles.

Which polygons tessellate with other shapes?

For any polygon, there will be other shapes such that, together, they can tessellate.

A polygon has no congruent sides which kind of polygon could it be?

The majority of polygons would meet these requirements. Polygons with congruent sides are the exception rather than the other way around.


Why is the triangle the most common polygon?

Because all other polygons are derived from it


Can a polygon always be a quadrilateral?

No. Quadrilaterals are polygons, but so are many other shapes.
