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.
What are Exterior Angles?
- They are formed on the outside or exterior of the polygon.
- The sum of an interior angle and its corresponding exterior angle is always 180 degrees since they lie on the same straight line.
- In the figure, angles 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 are the exterior angles of the polygon.
