3.5 Polygons

  1. Polygons are closed figures that are formed by line segments.
  2. Each side is a line segment.
  3. The point where two line segments meet is a vertex.
  4. The sides do not cross each other and exactly two sides meet at every vertex.
  5. The segments that form the boundary are sides, which meet at a vertices to form the interior angle.
  6. If we connect two vertices that are not adjacent on the polygon, we form a diagonal.
Examples: Squares, Triangles, Rectangles, etc.

Directions: Answer the following questions. Also draw 10 examples of polygons an name the sides, vertices and diagonals on a sheet of paper.
Q 1: In polygons, the point where two line segments meet is called a

Q 2: A closed figure that is formed by line segments is called a
