How To Determine Exterior Angles Of A Polygon?


The measure of each exterior angle =360°/n, where n = number of sides of a polygon. One important property about a regular polygon’s exterior angles is that the sum of the measures of the exterior angles of a polygon is always 360°.


The sum of the exterior angles of a polygon is 360°. The formula for calculating the size of an exterior angle in a regular polygon is: 360 (div) number of sides. If you know the exterior angle you can find the interior angle using the formula: interior angle + exterior angle = 180° 1
