The polygon is a basically called plane figure and that is surrounded with closed path, collected of a fixed series in straight line segments with a nearer polygonal chain. And these segments are called its edges or sides. Let us discuss the topic called polygon basics. (Source – Wikipedia)

**Types of Polygon Basics**

Names of polygons basics with different number of sides:

- Triangle : Triangle consists of three sides
- Quadrilateral :Quadrilateral consists of four sides
- Pentagon: Pentagon consists of five sides
- Hexagon:Hexagon consists of six sides
- Octagon:Octagon consist of eight sides.
- Nanogon : Nonagon consists of nine sides
- Decagon : Decagon consists of ten sides
- Heptagon:Heptagon consists of sevensides.
- Triskaidecagon or Tridecagon : Trikaidecagon or tridecagon consists of thirteen sides.

- Tetrakaidecagon or Tetradecagon : Tetrakaidecagon or tetradecagon consists of fourteen sides.
- Pendedecagon : Pendedecagon consists of fifteen sides.
- Hexdecagon: Texdecagon consists of sixteen sides.
- Heptdecagon: Heptdecagon seventeen sides.
- Octdecagon: Octdecagon eighteen sides.
- Enneadecagon: Enneadecagon consists of nineteen sides
- Icosagon: Icosagon consists of twenty sides.
- Triacontagon : Triacontagon consists of thirty sides.
- Teracontagon: Teracontagon consists of forty sides.
- Tetracontagon: Tetracontagon consists of fifty sides.
- Pentacontagon: Tentacontagon consists of sixty sides.

The triangle is the basic method in polygon and it has three angles. This involves three sides and three vertices.

**Square**

**The octagon**

The drawn diagramatic representation are the basics form in polygon.

**Problems Based on Polygon Basics**

**Example 1 :**

Determine the side distance end to end of hexagon is 12 cm. Mention the area of the hexagon.

**Solution:**

Given:

Side distances (t) = 12 cm

Formula:

Area of the hexagon (A) = t2 2.6

= 122 x 2.6

= 144 x 2.6

= 374.4

**Example 2:**

The side distances of hexagon is 13cm. Find the area of the hexagon.

**Solution:**

Given:

Side length (t) = 13 cm

Formula:

Area of the hexagon (A) = t2 2.6

= 132 x 2.6

= 169 x 2.6

= 439.4

Area of the hexagon = 439.4 cm2
