    It wants me to find the sum of a convex polygon and the polygon is a 16-gon

    Use the formula (n-2)*180

    My next one is: The measure of the interior angles of a regular polygon is given. Find the number of sides in the polygon.

    Sum of the angles is 1980?

    I just got to find the polygon that has a number of sides of 1980.

    \[\frac{(n-2)\times180}{n}=\text{Each \angle inside the polygon}\] \[(n-2)\times180=\text{Sum of angles inside the polygon}\] ---------------------------------------------------------- So, \[(n-2)\times180=\text{Sum of angles inside the polygon}\] \[(n-2)\times180=1980\] n=13

    The equation is (180)(n-2), where n is the number of sides. Here's why: |dw:1334620067825:dw| The number of triangles that I can split the polygon up into, is n-2. Each triangle's interior angles sum to 180. How cool! =D
