# How many sides does a regular polygon have if the measure of an exterior angle is 24°?

**Solution:**

Total sum of all the exterior angles of the regular polygon = 360°

Let number of sides be = n.

Measure of each exterior angle = 24°

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

= 360° / 24°

= 15

Thus the regular polygon has 15 sides.
