    Did you figure out the interior angle?

    Right, now for figuring out the number of sides, use the fact that the sum of exterior angles is always \(360^{\circ}\).

    Because one exterior angle is \(30^{\circ}\), we can say that if there are \(n\) exterior angles, then \(30n = 360\).

    6 so its a hexagon which has interior angles equal to 120

    Scroll up... you figured that the interior angle is \(150\) which was correct!
