Polygon Classification

November 16, 2012 By: mathqa2 Category: math

Area Polygon is one of the important shape in geometry; generally there are two types of polygon. Classification of polygons are regular and irregular polygon the regular angle, sides are equal irregular polygon different sides, and angles are not equal. In this article we have to discuss about classification of regular polygon and types of polygons with suitable examples.
Example for Classification of Polygon:
Classification of polygon define as several types, they are
Type of regular polygon                          
    Triangle                                 
    Square                      
    Pentagon                     
    Hexagon               
    Heptagon                      
    Octagon                   
    Nonagon                  
    Decagon              
    Hendecagon                
    Dodecagon       
Regular polygon
Explaination for Classification of Polygon:
Triangle:
    The equilateral triangle is one of the type of regular polygon because it has three sides  and 3 angles are equal and it has three lines of symmetry in polygons.
Square:
    The square is one of the type of regular polygon because it has four sides and four angles are equal and it has four lines of symmetry in polygons.
Pentagon:
    The pentagon is one of the type of regular polygon because it has five sides  and five angles are equal and it has five lines of symmetry in polygons.
Hexagon:
    The hexagon is one of the type of regular polygon because it has six sides  and six angles are equal and it has five lines of symmetry in polygons.
Heptagon:
   The heptagon is one of the type of regular polygon because it has seven sides  and seven angles are equal and it has five lines of symmetry in polygons.
Octagon:
    The octagon is one of the type of regular polygon because it has eight sides  and eight angles are equal and it has five lines of symmetry in polygons.
Nonagon:
    The nonagon is one of the type of regular polygon because it has nine sides  and nine angles are equal and it has five lines of symmetry in polygons.
Decagon:
    The decagon is one of the type of regular polygon because it has ten sides  and ten angles are equal and it has five lines of symmetry in polygons.
Hendecagon:
    The hendecagon is one of the type of regular polygon because it has eleven sides  and eleven angles are equal and it has five lines of symmetry in polygons
Dodecagon :
     The dodecagon is one of the type of regular polygon because it has twelve sides  and twelve angles are equal and it has five lines of symmetry in polygons.
