    so how many total degrees are in each? N being number of sides

    yes, but you don't want them totalled together; once you have the total degrees in each polygon, you need to find out how large each SEPARATE angle is in each polygon. This simply requires the total divided by the number of sides. from there, take another look at your picture...

    ...remembering that 360 degrees make up a full circle...

    k, how many total degrees are in a hexagon (N=6)?

    320?

    no: (6-2)*180=720; how many total degrees in a pentagon?

    i did 5-2 wich is 3 and i multiplied 3 with 180

    thats correct, but your arithmetic is wrong then; 3*180=540

    k, so back to the hexagon: we have 720 degrees total in it, and 6 angles inside it, correct?

    so how large is each angle in the hexagon if they are all the same size?

    k, so now we have the two adjacent angles to the desired angle in the picture, right?

    so remember that there are 360 degrees in a circle, and apply that to your picture

    you agree that there are 360 degrees in a circle?

    look at the picture, and how if you add up the two adjacent angles, plus the unknown one, it makes a circle.

    but 228+132 makes 360?
