Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There's only two formulas you need to solve problems like this: If you have a regular polygon, then let i be measure of interior angle, let e be measure of interior angle and n be number of sides of the polygon. Then i + e = 180 360/e = n In other words, if you're given the measure of the interior angle, then you can find the number of sides of a polygon using the two formulas above. Use the first formula to find the measure of the exterior angle and the second formula to find the number of sides of the regular polygon.
