Interior angle would be 180 - 20 = 160 Now that we know this, let's use the formula. \(\Large \color{MidnightBlue}{\Rightarrow {180n - 360 \over n} = 160 }\) \(\Large \color{MidnightBlue}{\Rightarrow 160n = 180n - 360 }\) \(\Large \color{MidnightBlue}{\Rightarrow 0 = 20n - 360 }\) \(\Large \color{MidnightBlue}{\Rightarrow -20n = -360 }\) \(\Large \color{MidnightBlue}{\Rightarrow 20n = 360 }\) \(\Large \color{MidnightBlue}{\Rightarrow n = 18 }\) 18 sides.

OH the same formula huh ok

Parth (parthkohli):

Yep :P

OpenStudy (anonymous):

(2n-4)*9=16n => 18n-36=16n => 2n=36=> n=18
