Yes because in order to be a polygon it must have 3 or more sides in fact the word polygon means many sides

a closed, flat figure is a polygon. But it is only a polygon when it is not round.

### A is a flat figure?

A flat figure is a POLYGON like a square cylinder circle rectangle and lots of more ass

### A polyhedron is a two-dimensional figure bounded by polygons?

A polyhedron is a three-dimensional figure formed by flat surfaces that are bounded by polygons joining along their sides (the faces of the polyhedron).A circle is not a polygon, but we can say that a circle is the limit of a regular polygon with n sides. It means that if n becomes larger and larger, the polygon shape approaches to a circle. A circle is a two dimensional figure as a polygon is, but a three dimensional figure whose base(s) is/are a circle cannot be called a polyhedron.

### What is a flat figure polygon?

A flat figure polygon is a 2-D figure. It can be a square rectangle decagon dodecagon nonagon heptagon hexagon triangle parallelogram rhombus trapezoid and I forgot what the 2-D name for an 11 sided figure. (2-D can only be shown on paper and a polygon is any CLOSED figure) Hope this Helps!!! A.S.

### Does a polygon have a flat surface why?

Yes, because a polygon is a plane (flat) figure. By definition, if it is not flat, it cannot be a polygon.

### What is the difference between a polygon and an octagon?

A polygon is any 2D figure with no curves, is closed in (no gaps), and is flat. An octagon is a specific polygon, one that has 8 sides (ex. a stop sign).

### What reasons explain why octagon is a polygon?

Because it is an 8 sided flat 2 dimensional shape

Yes

polygon

### Is a colsed figure with three or more sides which never curves?

If "colsed" is meant to be "closed", and if the figure is planar (flat), and if the sides of the figure do not cross, then it is a polygon. But answer to the question could include shapes such as stars (pentagrams) which are not polygons..

### Can a pentagon be a polygon?

Pentagons are a type of polygon. A polygon is a flat, closed, geometric shape that has at least three sides.
