Polygon Problems

Examples of a regular polygon (polygon). Polygon is a closed part of the plane bounded by a broken line. Points that define a polygon are the polygon vertices. The number of vertices, sides, and interior angles in a polygon is the same, and this number specifies the name of the polygon: triangle, quadrangle, pentagon, etc.
