**MathMate**, Wednesday, April 13, 2011 at 2:10pmA polygon of n sides can have n-1 diagonal from each vertex. From n vertices, the polygon can have n(n-1)/2 diagonals. The number has to be divided by 2 because we have counted the diagonal from both sides.

So using the formula

d(n)=n(n-1)/2

you can find n.

Hint: n is between 5 and 15.
