180(x-2)=135 [Interior Angle Sum Theorem]

x-2=.75

x=2.75

That can't be right though. Help?

Not sure about your formula.

Number of sides = 360/(180-interior angle)

so

Number of sides = 360/(180-135)

= 360/45

= 8

180(x-2) gives you the SUM of the interior angles, so each angle would be 180(x-2)/x

your equation would be

180(x-2)/x = 135

Sove it, you will get the answer DrRuss got.
