Sum of interior angles The sum of interior angles θ of a polygon of n sides is: Sum, Σθ = (n – 2) × 180° Sum of exterior angles The sum of exterior angles β is equal to 360°. ∑β = 360°

A circle is circumscribed about a triangle if it passes through the vertices of the triangle.

Given four sides a, b, c, d, and two opposite angles B and D: Divide the area into two triangles

Parallelogram Number of diagonals, D The diagonal of a polygon is the line segment joining two non-adjacent sides. The number of diagonals is given by: n D = (n − 3) 2 Regular polygons Circle inscribed in a triangle (Incircle) A circle is inscribed in a triangle if it is tangent to the three sides of the triangle.
