Ive been taught yes. Otherwise, you cant have a closed figure or straight lines. Both of which describes a polygon But when I looked it up on wikipedia for you (I left you a link, your welcome) I found the classifications saying that there are polygons with one (henagon/ monogon) and two (digon) sides. Why don't you take a look at the site? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polygon#Naming_polygons I also looked up their image on Google. A henagon is a circle. They classified a point on it as a side, making it a polygon. Link: http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=henagon&gbv=2&aq=f&oq= A digon is more complicated, I can't even understand it. but here is a link to some images. There are 2 different digons I found: http://www.pballew.net/lune2.jpg http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/12/Regular_digon_in_spherical_geometry-2.svg/240px-Regular_digon_in_spherical_geometry-2.svg.png&imgrefurl=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digon&usg=__cvo67cucls1y356t_fenQcgE31E=&h=240&w=240&sz=25&hl=en&start=4&tbnid=UfE4uJUYp-NasM:&tbnh=110&tbnw=110&prev=/images%3Fq%3Ddigon%2Bpolygon%26gbv%3D2%26hl%3Den (Ull find 3 more on that link)
