Exterior Angles of Polygons
Click the "▶" button. Observe the angles turned by the car at the corners. Drag the green points. 1. What is a + b + c + d + e, the total angle sum turned by the car? 2. The points a, b, c, d, e are called the exterior angles of the convex pentagon ABCDE. In general, what is the sum of all exterior angles of a convex polygon? 3. How would you modify the result if the pentagon ABCDE is NOT convex?
