Deca is the Greek for 10 so Decagon because it has 10 angles. It's all Greek to me ... ha ha.

### How many angles does a regular polygon have when its interior angle is 176 degrees

Lots and lots and lots. When you think the angle is nearly 180 degrees or a straight line, it must have lots and lots of sides.

The total of the interior angles of a polygon is given by (n-2)180, so the angle of each interior angle of a regular polygon is given by ((n-2)180)/n.

Now we set this to be equal to 176 and solve for n.
(n-2)180 = 176
-----------
n

Multiplying both sides by n, we get (n-2) 180 = 176n

Expanding the left side of the equation, 180n - 360 = 176n

Subtracting 176n from both sides and adding 360 to both sides, we get

180n - 176n = 360

4n = 360

Dividing both sides by 4, n = 90

Thus, you need a regular polygon of 90 sides to get an internal angle of 176 degrees.

Hopefully you don't have to construct it.

Good luck,

Paul

### I s a p e n t a g o n a p o l l y g o n ? I w a n t t o k n o w ?

It's my understanding that a polygon is a multisided plain figure ( a two dimensional figure.). This means that a triangle - 3 sides, a square - 4 sides, a pentagon - 5 sides, a hexagon - 6 sides, (I'm not sure but I think a seven sided figure is a heptagon?), an octagon - 8 sides, a nonagon - 9 sides, a decagon - 10 sides, etc. are each examples of polygons.

### Shapes that are not polygons

Polygon means 'many sides'. Shapes that don't have sides are circles, ovals etc.

### I do not know every shape on earth like a octagon has 8 sides a decagon has 9 sides but what are the rest

Actually, a decagon has 10 sides while a nonagon has 9 sides.

Not every polygon has a name, since there are an infinite possibilities for the number of sides. You can see the names for many of them at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polygon

### Lost power cord for speakers where do i get another.

RadioShack or Best Buy. Target might even have it. Just remember the shape for the plug that goes into the speaker. It will only cost at Max, \$10 Chances are its either a round side and square side, or a three prong polygon.
