## What are the 2 types of polygon?

Table of Contents

There are two main types of polygon – regular and irregular. A regular polygon has equal length sides with equal angles between each side.

**How many types of polygon are there?**

There are 4 types of Polygon : Regular Polygon: If all the sides and interior angles of the polygon are equal or if a polygon is equiangular and equilateral, then the polygon will be known as a regular polygon. Example square, rhombus, equilateral triangle, etc.

### What is a polygon different types of polygon?

Ans: 10 Types of Polygons based on sides are:

- Triangle –3 sides.
- Quadrilateral –4 sides.
- Pentagon –5 sides.
- Hexagon –6 sides.
- Heptagon –7 sides.
- Octagon –8 sides.
- Nonagon –9 sides.
- Decagon –10 sides.

#### What is a polygon ks1?

A polygon is a flat two-dimensional shape with straight sides that are fully closed. The sides must be straight, not curved. However, polygons can have any number of sides. The word polygon comes from the Greek “polugonos”.

## What are the different types of polygons?

Types of Polygons 1 Regular and Irregular Polygons. Regular polygons have congruent sides and interior angles. 2 Convex and Concave Polygons. A convex polygon closes in an interior area without looking “dented.” None of its interior angles point inward. 3 Simple and Complex Polygons. Simple polygons have no self-intersecting sides.

**How many sides does a polygon have?**

For example, a polygon as four sides and four angles, then it is quadrilateral. The polygons up to 12 sides are the important ones. We are going to learn here polygon’s types based on the number of sides of the closed figure along with examples and diagrams.

### What is the difference between polygons and 2D shapes?

An example of a polygon is a triangle with three sides. A circle is also a plane figure but it is not considered as a polygon, because it is a curved shape and does not have sides or angles. Therefore, we can say, all the polygons are 2d shapes but not all the two-dimensional figures are polygons.

**What are the characteristics of regular polygons?**

Regular polygons have congruent sides and interior angles. Every side is equal in length to every other side, and every interior angle is equal to all other interior angles. The number of regular polygons is limitless.
