Angles of a Polygon
Want a study guide too?
We know what you came here for—you want to hear the latest interview with the hot starlet, Polly Gon. Well, we've got the scoop for you. She's real, she's raw, and she's… well, okay, she's a shape. But oh, what a shape.
secret. . .
. . . and she's about to let us in on it. Polly, great to see you. What's the scoop?
<<Polly>> Oh, it's nothing really. It's just my angles.
<<Mary>> Your ankles? Well, they are lovely. <<Polly, a little testy>> Not my ankles, you
twit, my angles.
As you know, I'm famous for being a many-sided individual. . .
. . .and I want to let my fans know how easy it is to determine all my angles no matter
what shape I'm in. <<Mary>> Oookkkaaay.
<<Polly>> It's quite simple really. All you have to do is divide me into triangles.
Since all triangles have 180°, you just have to add them up to know my angles.
<<Mary>> Well, that's very interesting...
... but what about when you, how can I say this, balloon up a bit?
<<Polly angrily>> THAT was for a part -- the female remake of Raging Bull.
<<Mary>> Sorry. You were saying. <<Polly>> No matter what size I am, I can
still be divided into triangles. <<Mary>> Oh, I get it. I think I'm seeing
a bit of a pattern here. <<Polly>> Well, I should hope so.
If you count my sides and subtract 2, you get . . .
<<Mary interrupting>> . . . the total number of triangles!
<<Polly>> I think this interview is finished. <<Mary>> There you have it. Once again Geometry
Tonight scoops the world. . .

. . . until then, happy calculating and may all your angles be right.
