# What is the sum of the measures of the interior angles of a hexagon

The angles that lie inside a shape (generally a polygon) are said to be interior angles** **and hexagon is defined as a polygon with 8 sides.

## Answer: The sum of the measures of the interior angles of a hexagon is 720 degrees

The formula to find the sum of the measures of the interior angles of a polygon is (n - 2) × 180^{º} where n is a number of sides.

## Explanation:

Sum of the measures of the interior angles of a hexagon = (n - 2) × 180^{º}

= (6 - 2) × 180^{º}

= 4 × 180^{º}

= 720^{º}
