So I started out by doing
And I substituted n for 16 because n is the number of sides.
And then I tried to find out what the measure of the interior angles was.
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
Now just divide by the number of sides
Yes that!! @ksaimouli I thought about that!!
R u sure? @zaynahf for some reason I thought it was wrong to do that.
then u forgot to divide /n or number of sides in this case 16 i think
So are you saying that 157.5 is the measure of an interior angle?
*SOrry, not the # of sides
360/16 =22.5 for exterior angle?
Oh! 14 for the triangles?
That makes each side become 180 for interior!?! whaaa...makes no sense..
I know, lol i just messed up
oh..so then how do I do this?
Sorry, its been a long time -_-
Here, i found this:
Exterior angles always add up to 360 no matter how many sides. So to find an interior angle, it's easiest to find the exterior angle and subtract it from 180 since interior + exterior = 180
So 1 16-gon: 360 / 16 = 22.5; 180 - 22.5 = 157.5 degrees
