What Is the Sum of the Measures of the Interior Angles of a Hexagon?


Question: 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) × 180º where n is a number of sides.

Explanation:

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

= (6 - 2) × 180º 

= 4 × 180º

= 720º

Therefore, sum of the measures of the interior angles of a hexagon is 720º.
