Textbook Problem

A regular polygon of n sides has an exterior angle whose measure is 4 degrees larger than the measure of the exterior angle of the regular polygon with (n + 1) sides. Find n and name the type of polygon that has n sides.

To determine

To find:

The number of sides of a regular polygon and its type.

Explanation

Approach:

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

Calculation:

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

The measure of each exterior angle of a regular polygon of sides n + 1 is given by E=360n+1

According to the question, 360n360n+1=4

360n360n+1=490n90n+1=11n1n+1=190n+1
