# The measure of each exterior angle of a regular pentagon is?

A regular pentagon is a polygon with 5 sides of equal measure.

## Answer: The measure of each exterior angle of a regular pentagon is 72°

A regular pentagon has all angles of the same measure and all sides of the same length.

**Explanation:**

The sum of the exterior angles of all polygons is equal to 360°

To find the measure of an exterior angle of the pentagon we use the formula:

Exterior Angle = 360°/n

Where n = number of sides

Exterior Angle of a regular pentagon = 360°/5 = 72°

### Thus, the measure of each exterior angle of a regular pentagon is 72°.
