## How many kinds of polygons are there?

There are two main types of polygon – regular and irregular. A regular polygon has equal length sides with equal angles between each side. Any other polygon is an irregular polygon, which by definition has unequal length sides and unequal angles between sides.

### What are three different polygons and the number of sides on each?

## How many maximum sides does a polygon have?

Polygon is basically any closed shape which is formed with three or more straight lines. There is no limit in how many sides will be there in a polygon, it can possess infinite sides, they can have 10 sides or more sides.

### What are the different types of pentagons?

Types of Pentagons

- Regular or equilateral pentagon: five equal sides and angles.
- Irregular pentagon: five unequal sides and unequal angles.
- Convex pentagon: no internal angle can be greater than 180 degrees.
- Concave pentagon: has an internal angle greater than 180 degrees causing two sides to “sink in” like a “cave”

**What are polygons explain different of polygons?**

A polygon is any 2-dimensional shape formed with straight lines. Triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, and hexagons are all examples of polygons. The name tells you how many sides the shape has. For example, a triangle has three sides, and a quadrilateral has four sides. This is what makes a polygon.

**What type of polygon has 12 sides?**

A dodecagon is a 12-sided polygon. Several special types of dodecagons are illustrated above. In particular, a dodecagon with vertices equally spaced around a circle and with all sides the same length is a regular polygon known as a regular dodecagon.

## What is a shape with 8 sides?

octagon

An octagon is a shape with 8 sides and 8 angles.

### What is polygon and types of polygon?

A polygon is any 2-dimensional shape formed with straight lines. Triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, and hexagons are all examples of polygons. The name tells you how many sides the shape has. For example, a triangle has three sides, and a quadrilateral has four sides.

**What is the name of 4 sided polygon?**

quadrilateral

Definition: A quadrilateral is a polygon with 4 sides. A diagonal of a quadrilat- eral is a line segment whose end-points are opposite vertices of the quadrilateral.

**What polygon has 10 sides?**

Triangle – 3 sides

## How do you find sides of a polygon?

A regular polygon is equilateral (it has equal sides) and equiangular (it has equal angles). To find the area of a regular polygon, you use an apothem — a segment that joins the polygon’s center to the midpoint of any side and that is perpendicular to that side (segment HM in the following figure is an apothem).

### How many congruent sides does a polygon have?

A polygon that has all sides congruent is called a “regular polygon.”. Regular polygons must also have all angles congruent, which is a side effect of having congruent sides. For instance, a square must always have four 90-degree angles because of its four congruent sides.

**How many sides and angles does every polygon have?**

The simplest polygon, the triangle, has three interior angles (and three exterior angles!) so it also has three sides . You can have polygons with so many sides, they appear to be circles even when they are not.
