Find the measure of each exterior angle of a regular polygon whose central angle measures a) 30°. c) 40°.

To determine

a) To find:

The measure of each exterior angle of a regular polygon.

Explanation

Approach:

1) The measure of any central angle of a regular polygon of n sides is given by c=360n

2) The measure of each exterior angle of a regular polygon is given by E=360n

Calculation:

It is given that the central angle of the regular polygon is 30°.

Use the formula of central angle, c=360n

Substitute c = 30° in c=360n

To determine

b) To find:

The measure of each exterior angle of a regular polygon.
