diagonal of a polygon

a segment that connects any two nonconsecutive vertices.


Interior Sum Theorem

If a convex polygon has n sides and S is the sum of the measures of its interior angles, then S = 180 (n  2).


Exterior Sum Theorem

If a polygon is convex, then the sum of the measures of the exterior angles, one at each vertex, is 360 degrees.
