b. the number of sides of the polygon
c. the sum of the interior angles
d. Name the polygon

    interior: (n-2)180/n
    exterior: 360/n

    (n-2)180/n ÷ 360/n = (n-2)/2 = 5
    n = 8

    a:
    exterior: 45
    interior: 135

    b: n=8

    c: 6(180) = 1080

    d: octagon

    Oops
    n=12

    exterior: 30
    interior: 150

    n=12

    10(180) = 1800

    dodecagon
