## What is it called when you add all the sides of a shape?

The perimeter of a two-dimensional shape is the distance around the shape. You can think of wrapping a string around a triangle. The length of this string would be the perimeter of the triangle. If the shape is a polygon, then you can add up all the lengths of the sides to find the perimeter.

## What is an infinite sided polygon?

In geometry, an apeirogon (from the Greek words “ἄπειρος” apeiros: “infinite, boundless”, and “γωνία” gonia: “angle”) or infinite polygon is a generalized polygon with a countably infinite number of sides. Apeirogons are the two-dimensional case of infinite polytopes.

**Can a circle be thought of as an infinite sided polygon explain your answer?**

It is definitely useful to consider a circle as the limit of n–sided polygons as n gets bigger and bigger. Sometimes it is absolutely sensible, as a convenient shorthand, to think of a circle as being like a polygon with infinitely many sides.

### When we increase the number of sites to infinite The polygon becomes a?

Consider triangle as the first polygon. Now, if we add two triangles you get a quadrilateral. If you add one more triangle you get a Pentagon,then a hexagon and then so on….. if you add infinite number of triangles you will finally get a circle.

### What shapes have all sides congruent?

The square is also the name of the regular quadrilateral — one in which all sides are congruent and all angles are congruent.

**Does a circle have zero sides or infinite sides?**

If you think of it as a curve, then it has an inside and an outside. If you think of it as the limit of an n-sided regular polygon, then one can justify the answer that the circle has infinitely many infinitesimal sides.

## Does a circle have 0 or infinite sides?

For instance, if a side must be a line segment along the edge with nonzero length, it’s obvious a circle has no sides. If a single point can be a side, a circle likely has an infinite number of sides, depending on the rest of your definition.

## At what point does a polygon become a circle?

As the number of sides increase, the internal angle can come very close to 180°, and the shape of the polygon approaches that of a circle. However the polygon can never become a circle. The value of the internal angle can never become exactly equal to 180°, as the circumference would effectively become a straight line.

**What do the exterior angles of a polygon add up to?**

The sum of the exterior angles of a polygon is 360°.

### What is a convex polygon with no angle pointing inwards?

A convex polygon has no angles pointing inwards. More precisely, no internal angle can be more than 180°. If any internal angle is greater than 180° then the polygon is concave.

### Do regular and irregular polygons have the same interior angles?

Though the sum of interior angles of a regular polygon and irregular polygon with the same number of sides the same, the measure of each interior angle differs. In case of regular polygons, the measure of each interior angle is congruent to the other. However, in case of irregular polygons, the interior angles do not give the same measure.

**What is the difference between Polygon and regular shape?**

The polygons are the closed shape that has sides and vertices. A regular polygon has all its interior angles equal to each other. For example, a square has all its interior angles equal to the right angle or 90 degrees. The interior angles of a polygon are equal to a number of sides.

## How do you make triangles in regular polygon case?

Regular Polygon case. Why? The triangles are created by drawing the diagonals from one vertex to all the others. Since there would be no diagonal drawn back to itself, and the diagonals to each adjacent vertex would lie on top of the adjacent sides, the number of diagonals from a single vertex is three less the the number of sides, or n-3.
