**Steve**, Wednesday, March 28, 2012 at 11:14amat each vertex, interior + exterior = 180 degrees.

If exterior = x,

x+(8x+18) = 180

9x = 162

x = 18

he exterior angle of a regular n-gon is 360/n, so

18 = 360/n

n = 20

**drwls**, Wednesday, March 28, 2012 at 11:22amInterior angle = 180 - (exterior angle) = 180 -360/N

Exterior angle = 360/N

180 - (360/N) = [8*360/N] +18

9*360/N = 162

N = 20 sides

It is called an icosagon
