Use that information to calculate the exterior
angle measures and sums of each regular
polygon in the table at right.
a) Use the table in #6 to graph the exterior
angle sums of an n-sided regular polygon.

Recall that adjacent interior/exterior angles are linear pairs. So, in a polygon with n-sides, there are also
____ vertices. Hence, there are also n pairs of _____________ angles. The sum of all of the
polygon’s supplementary angles is______, which is the sum of the interior and exterior ∠’s. Substitute
the formulas below to derive the exterior angle sum of any convex polygon.
exterior ∠ sum = sum of supplementary∠’s – interior ∠ sum
