# Find the measure of each exterior angle of a regular polygon of

(i) 9 sides (ii) 15 sides

**Solution:**

Irrespective of the number of sides of a regular polygon, the measure of each exterior angle is equal and the sum of the measure of all the exterior angles of the regular polygon is equal to 360°.

(i) 9 sides

The total sum of all exterior angles = 360°

Each exterior angle = Sum of exterior angles / Number of sides

= 360°/9

= 40°

Each exterior angle = 40°

(ii) 15 sides

The total sum of all exterior angles = 360°

Each exterior angle = Sum of exterior angles / Number of sides

= 360°/15

= 24°

Each exterior angle = 24°
