There is no limit to the number of triangles. At any time, you can select a triangle; select one of its vertices and draw a line from that vertex to the opposite side. That gives one more non-overlapping triangle. And you can keep on doing that indefinitely.

How many triangles are in an 11 sided polygon?

Any n-sided regular polygon, by joining a single vertex up to each of the others, will have a total of (n - 2) triangles inside. In this case, an 11-sided polygon will contain 11 - 2 = 9 triangles.

What is the classifying of polygon?

There are a number of different, and sometimes overlapping, classifications. Polygons may be convex or concave. In a convex polygon, any two points inside the polygon are joined by a straight line that is wholly inside the polygon. In a concave polygon there are at least two points such that the line joining them intersects its boundary. Polygons can by equilateral (all sides of equal length), or equiangular (all angles of equal measure) or regular (all sides equal AND all angles equal). Note that in general (unlike for triangles) equilateral and equiangular are not the same. Polygons can be classified according to the number of sides/angles.

What is the total interior angle of aregular polygon if t equals 20 triangles can be drawn inside the polygon?

The total angles will be 3600 degrees, because each triangle will have 180 degrees total.
