## Study Notes

### Types of Polygons

• Regular Polygons: All sides and angles are equal.
• Irregular Polygons: Not all sides and angles are equal.
• Convex Polygons: All angles are less than 180°.
• Concave Polygons: At least one angle is more than 180°.
• Star Polygons: A polygon that is not convex, but can be formed by connecting non-adjacent vertices.
• Simple Polygons: A polygon that does not intersect itself.

### Interior Angles of Polygons

• The sum of interior angles of an n-sided polygon is (n-2) × 180°.
• Each interior angle of a regular n-sided polygon is (n-2) × 180° / n.
• Exterior angles of a polygon add up to 360°.

### Perimeter of Polygons

• The perimeter of a polygon is the sum of the lengths of all its sides.
• The formula to calculate the perimeter of a regular polygon is: Perimeter = number of sides × side length.

### Area of Polygons

• The area of a polygon can be calculated by dividing it into triangles and calculating the area of each triangle.
• The formula to calculate the area of a regular polygon is: Area = (number of sides × side length × apothem) / 2.
• The apothem is the distance from the center of the polygon to one of its vertices.

### Types of Polygons

• A regular polygon is a polygon with all sides and angles equal.
• An irregular polygon is a polygon where not all sides and angles are equal.
• A convex polygon has all angles less than 180°.
• A concave polygon has at least one angle greater than 180°.
• A star polygon is a polygon that is not convex, formed by connecting non-adjacent vertices.
• A simple polygon is a polygon that does not intersect itself.

### Interior Angles of Polygons

• The sum of interior angles of an n-sided polygon is (n-2) × 180°.
• Each interior angle of a regular n-sided polygon is (n-2) × 180° / n.
• The sum of exterior angles of a polygon is 360°.

### Perimeter of Polygons

• The perimeter of a polygon is the sum of the lengths of all its sides.
• The formula to calculate the perimeter of a regular polygon is: Perimeter = number of sides × side length.

### Area of Polygons

• The area of a polygon can be calculated by dividing it into triangles and calculating the area of each triangle.
• The formula to calculate the area of a regular polygon is: Area = (number of sides × side length × apothem) / 2.
• The apothem is the distance from the center of the polygon to one of its vertices.
