Algebra 2

The formula A = 180(n-2)/n relates to the measure A of an interior angle of a regular polygon to the number of sides n. If an interior angle measures 120 degrees, find the number of sides

A)5
B)6
C)8
D)10

I have NO clue on how to do this pls help.

Make A equal 120 because A is the measure of an interior angle. Then solve the equation by cross multiplying. I hope that helps you.

I don't understand

change the formula around to find n:
A= 180(n-2)/n
nA= 180n-360
n(A-180)=-360
n= 360/(180-A)

so 6 is the correct answer? thanks for explaning it IF I'm right

six is right.

    If I have a polygon with x+2y sides, how do I find the interior and eterior angle? I know that to find the interior angle you use 180(x-2) and for the exterior you use 360/x. But do i just plug in x+2y for every x? I'm lost

    In a regular polygon (equal sides and angles), you use (n-2)180 to find out what the interior angle sum is (n=number of sides in polygon) and you divide by that number by whatever n is to find out the measure of an individual
