Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0pentagons and hexagons have how many total degrees in them?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but i get confused though, thats y i need help :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how many total degrees are in each? N being number of sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ooh, 52*180 + 62*180?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, 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...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0...remembering that 360 degrees make up a full circle...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0k, how many total degrees are in a hexagon (N=6)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no: (62)*180=720; how many total degrees in a pentagon?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i did 52 wich is 3 and i multiplied 3 with 180

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats correct, but your arithmetic is wrong then; 3*180=540

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0k, so back to the hexagon: we have 720 degrees total in it, and 6 angles inside it, correct?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how large is each angle in the hexagon if they are all the same size?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0bam! so how large are the angles on the pentagon?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0k, so now we have the two adjacent angles to the desired angle in the picture, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so remember that there are 360 degrees in a circle, and apply that to your picture

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you agree that there are 360 degrees in a circle?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0look at the picture, and how if you add up the two adjacent angles, plus the unknown one, it makes a circle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but 228+132 makes 360?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which should not yield 228
