#### Answer:

18

#### Explanation:

There are more complicated ways to do this, but I've always found this to be the easiest/fastest way. The Exterior angles of a polygon always add up to 360 degrees (they make their way all the way around the polygon...full circle).

The interior angle and the exterior angle add up to 180 degrees since they form a straight line.

Your interior angle was 160 degrees so the exterior angle would be 20 degrees. Now that we know an exterior angle we can divide to find out how many there are.

360 degrees divided by 20 degrees = 18 sides
