Worksheet on Exterior Angles of a Polygon

Practice the questions given in the worksheet on exterior angles of a polygon.

We know, the sum of all the exterior angles of a polygon having n sides is 360°. The questions are based on finding the sum of the exterior angles of a polygon and the number of sides of a polygon using the formula.

1. Find the number of sides of a regular polygon if each of its exterior angle is:

(a) 45°

(b) 60°

(c) 120°

(d) 40°  


2. Draw a regular pentagon whose exterior angles are p, q, r, s, t and each interior angle is k.

What is the measure of:

(a) each interior angle

(b) each exterior angle


3. Each interior angle of a polygon is five (5) times the exterior angle of the polygon. Find the number of sides.

4. Find the minimum interior angles and maximum exterior angles possible in a regular polygon. Give reasons to support your answer.

5. Find the exterior angle of a regular polygon of:

(a) 5 sides           

(b) 9 sides          

(c) 15 sides         

(d) 19 sides


6. The ratio between an exterior angle and the interior angle of a regular polygon is 1 : 2. Find:

(a) the measure of each exterior angle.

(b) the measure of each interior angle.

(c) the number of sides in the polygon.


7. The measure of the exterior angle of a hexagon is (3x – 4)°, (x + 4)°, (7x – 3)°, (8x – 1)°, (2x + 3)°, (9x + 1)°. Find the measure of each angle.

8. Is it possible to have a regular polygon each of whose exterior angle is 50°? Give reason to support your answer.

9. The ratio of the exterior and interior angle of a regular polygon is 2 : 3. Find the number of sides in the polygon.

10. The exterior angles of a hexagon are in the ratio 1 : 1 : 2 : 2 : 3 : 3. Find all the interior angles of the hexagon.

11. The sum of all the interior angles of a polygon is four times the sum of its exterior angles. Find the number of sides in the polygon. Also, find the measure of each exterior angle and each interior angles.
