If exterior angles are 120 then interior angles must be 60 so you have an equilateral triangle

If the polygon has n sides, each exterior angle is 360/n degrees.The interior angle is 180 less exterior angle.

360 ________________________________________________ Sum of Interior Angles of a Polygon = 180 (n-2) Sum of Exterior Angles of a Polygon = 360 The sum of an angle and an exterior angle of a regular polygon is 360

Exterior angle regular polygon = 360° ÷ number of sides = 360° ÷ W Interior angle regular polygon = 180° - exterior angle regular polygon = 180° - (360° ÷ number of sides ) = 180° - (360° ÷ W)

If exterior angles are 120 then interior angles must be 60 so you have an equilateral triangle

Interior angles 178 so exterior angles 2. Number of sides of any regular polygon = 360/exterior angle You polygon has 180 sides. Bet you're glad you didn't have to sketch it!

The easiest way to solve this is to use the exterior angles of the polygon. The sum of an exterior angle and interior angle is 180o. Also the sum of all the exterior angles of a polygon is 360o. As the polygon is regular, all the interior angles are the same and all the exterior angles are the same. So, for an interior angle of 172o the exterior angle is 180-172 = 8o. The sum of all the exterior angles is 360o so how many 8o make up 360o? 360/8=45. Thus the polygon with interior angles of 172o has 45 sides.
