Find the measure of a central angle of a regular polygon that has 35 diagonals.

To determine

To find:

The measure of a central angle of a regular polygon.

Explanation

Approach:

1) The number of diagonals of a regular polygon of n sides is given by D=n(n3)2

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

Calculation:

It is given the regular polygon has 35 diagonals.

Use the formula for the number of diagonals of a regular polygon, D=n(n3)2

Substitute D = 35 in D=n(n3)2

35=n(n3)2n(n3)=70n23n=70n23n70=0n210n+7n
