Answer:

Polygon has #11# sides

Explanation:

Sum of the exterior angles of any polygon is always #360^@#.

As three angles are #70^@,80^@# and #90^@# and remaining #n-3# angles are #15^@# and their sum is #360^@#, we have

#70+80+90+15(n-3)=360#

or #15(n-3)=360-70-80-90=120#

and #n-3=120/15=8#

i.e. #n=11#

Hence, polygon has #11# sides
