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.

Polygons whose sides are equal are called equilateral polygons. Polygons with equal interior angles are called equiangular polygons. Polygons that are both equilateral and equiangular are called regular polygons. The area of a regular polygon can be found by considering one segment, which has the form of an isosceles triangle.

Circles escribed about a triangle (Excircles)

A circle is escribed about a triangle if it is tangent to one side and to the prolongation of the other two sides. A triangle has three escribed circles. ra ra c a ra

Circle circumscribed about a quadrilateral

Cyclic Quadrilateral

A cyclic quadrilateral is a quadrilateral whose vertices lie on the circumference of a circle.

Area, A = ½ R2 sin θ × n = ½ x r × n Perimeter, P = n × x n−2 × 180° Interior angle = n Exterior angle = 360° / n Circle

A circle is circumscribed about a quadrilateral if it passes through the vertices of the quadrilateral. r=
