Concave

Concave

A concave polygon has at least one interior angle greater than 180 degrees. A common way to identify a concave polygon is to look for a "caved-in" side of the polygon.Convex

Convex

A convex polygon contains no interior angles greater than 180 degrees.Decagon

Decagon

A decagon is a ten sided polygon.Diagonal

Diagonal

A diagonal is a line segment in a polygon that connects nonconsecutive verticesExterior angles

Exterior angles

An exterior angle is the angle formed by one side of a polygon and the extension of the adjacent side.Heptagon

Heptagon

A heptagon is a seven sided polygon.Hexagon

Hexagon

A hexagon is a six sided polygon.Interior angles

Interior angles

Interior angles are the angles inside a figure.Nonagon

A pentagon is a five sided polygon.Polygon

Polygon

A polygon is a simple closed figure with at least three straight sides.Regular Polygon

Regular Polygon

A regular polygon is a polygon with all sides the same length and all angles the same measure.Vertices
