find the sum of the measures of the intieior angles of each polygon.
-hexagon
-pentagon
-octagon
-16-gon
-27-gon

The key is the sum of the measures. All of these figures have the same total number of degrees in their interior angles. What do you think that is?

Ms Sue, I have a feeling that you were thinking of the sum of the exterior angles of a polygon.
The question dealt with the sum of the interior angles, which if found by the expression 180*(n-2) where n is the number of sides in the polygon.
