(if it works for quadrilateral then it works for any polygon ) geometric logic so we need to show by contradiction that we cant construct a quadrilateral with 3 60 angle

yes that looks legit

that would make the other angle 180 seems more like not concave nor convex

Sum of all the exterior angles of a polygon is 360 degrees. The exterior angle corresponding to 60 degrees is 120 degrees. Since three angles are 60 degrees, the sum of those exterior angles is 120*3 = 360 degrees. Thus there can be no other non-zero exterior angle corresponding to a vertex. So, these are the only 3 vertices, and the polygon is an equilateral triangle.

Nice :) More generally : Any convex polygon with \(n\) angles equal to \(\dfrac{360}{n}\) must be a regular \(\text{n-gon}\)

for example, in a square we have \(4\) angles equal to \(180-\frac{360}{4} = 90\)
