Today we used the investigation and some animation and software driven demonstrations of exterior angles in order to come up with Conjectures 30-34 on pp 256-261.
The sum of the angles of a polygon with n sides is 180(n-2).
The sum of a set of exterior angles of a polygon is 360 degrees.
The angles in a quadrilateral sum to 360 degrees.
The measure of one angle in an equiangular polygon is
180(n-2)/n. OR 180-(360/n).
Every exterior angle is a linear pair to an interior angle. we also defined exterior angle as an angle formed by a side of a polygon and an extension of a side of a polygon.
