### What is the smallest angle of a regular polygon?

60 degrees, for an equilateral triangle, is the smallest interior angle.

### How many sides does a regular polygon have if the measure of an angle is 160?

No regular polygon has 160. The "smallest" polygon is the triangle, which has 180o. ^^FALSE!!!!!!! this polygon has 18 sides!

### What regular polygon has the smallest sides of any polygon with obtuse angles and how many sides does it have?

A pentagon: 5 sides.

### What shapes have the smallest surface area per volumn?

The fewer the number of sides that a polygon has, the higher the surface area to volume ratio. This increases until the polygon has an infinite number of sides, or has become a perfect sphere, when the ratio is the smallest.

### What is the sum of a polygon if the measure of the interior angle is 40 degrees?

If an interior angle is 40 degrees, the polygon must be irregular since the smallest angle for a regular polygon is 60 degrees. Since it is irregular, the polygon can have any number of sides.

### Does every polygon have at least three sides?

Yes. A polygon is by definition a shape enclosed by multiple sides - the smallest number of sides that enclose an area is three.

### What do you call a polygon with two sides?

It is impossible to create a 2D shape using only 2 straight lines. The smallest polygon has 3 sides - a triangle.

### What is the name of a 1 sided polygon?

There is no such thing, the smallest amount of sides a shape can have is 3 (Triangle).

### How many sides does a 24 degrees polygon have?

It cannot be a regular polygon with interior angles of 24 degrees since the smallest interior angle in a regular polygon is 60 degrees. If it is an irregular polygon, then any one of them, with 3 or more sides, can have an angle of 24 degrees.
