Answer:

#160°#

Explanation:

An alternative method is to use the exterior angle.

the sum of the exterior angles is ALWAYS #360°#

So you can find the size of the exterior angles of a regular polygon quite easily:

If there are #18# sides #(n=18)#, then each exterior angle is:

#(360°)/n = (360°)/18 = 20°#

The sum of the exterior and interior angles is #180°# because they are adjacent angles on a straight line.

#:.# each interior angle is #180° - 20° = 160°#

Answer:

Each interior angle of an 18 sided polygon is #color(brown)(160^@) #

Explanation:

enter image source here

Sum of the interior angles of a polygon is given by the formula

# n * I_18 = (2n - 4) * 90^@ or = (n - 2) * 180^@#

Since it’s an 18 sided polygon, #n = 18#

Therefore #hat I_18 = ((18-2) * cancel(180)^color(brown)(10)) / cancel18 = (16 * 10 )= 160^@#
