Polygon 42

Which polygon has 42 more diagonals than sides?

Correct result:

n =  12

Solution:

12n(n3)=n+42 n25n84=0  a=1;b=5;c=84 D=b24ac=5241(84)=361 D>0  n1,2=b±D2a=5±3612 n1,2=5±192 n1,2=2.5±9.5 n1=12 n2=7   Factored form of the equation:  (n12)(n+7)=0   n>0 n=12\dfrac12n (n-3) = n+42 \ \\ n^2 -5n -84 =0 \ \\ \ \\ a=1; b=-5; c=-84 \ \\ D = b^2 - 4ac = 5^2 - 4\cdot 1 \cdot (-84) = 361 \ \\ D>0 \ \\ \ \\ n_{1,2} = \dfrac{ -b \pm \sqrt{ D } }{ 2a } = \dfrac{ 5 \pm \sqrt{ 361 } }{ 2 } \ \\ n_{1,2} = \dfrac{ 5 \pm 19 }{ 2 } \ \\ n_{1,2} = 2.5 \pm 9.5 \ \\ n_{1} = 12 \ \\ n_{2} = -7 \ \\ \ \\ \text{ Factored form of the equation: } \ \\ (n -12) (n +7) = 0 \ \\ \ \\ \ \\ n>0 \ \\ n = 12
