Regular and Irregular Polygons
A polygon is a plane figure bounded by three or more straight line segments e.g. quadrilateral, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, and pentagon. A polygon can either be regular or irregular.
A regular polygon is one that has all sides equal
Irregular polygon is one that has unequal sides
Examples of Polygons
Construction of Hexagon Using a Pair of Compasses
A hexagon is a figure with six sides.
- Draw a circle with radius equal to the length of the side given, and draw the horizontal diameter
- With A as center, and the same radius (30mm), cut the circle above to give AC, and below to give AD.
