Using systematic polygon-naming rules, a forty-eight sided regular polygon would be called a tetracontakaioctagon - "tetra" representing 4, "conta" signifying tens, the connector "-kai-", "octa" signifying 8, and "gon" from the Greek "gonia" meaning "angle" or "knee".

A polygon can have 8 sides but does not have to. The word "Polygon" is made up of two words: "poly-" and "-gon" which have Greek roots which mean "many" and "angle" respectively; literally a "polygon" is a "many angled shape". A polygon is any shape that has 3 or more sides. An 8 sided polygon is called an octagon (literally "eight angles").

The measure of 1 exterior angle of a regular 8-sided polygon is equivalent to 45 degrees. Hope I helped! :)

By looking at other polygons with less sides, we can see how many triangles they can fit. In a 4-sided polygon (square), you can fit 2 triangles. In a 5-sided polygon (pentagon), you can fit 3 triangles. In a 6-sided polygon (hexagon), you can fit 4 triangles. In an 8-sided polygon (octagon), you can fit 6 triangles. The pattern here is the number of triangles is equal to the number of sides minus 2. T = N - 2 So... 50 - 2 = 48. 48 triangles can fit into a 50-sided polygon.
