2. Are these figures polygons? yes no yes no

3. A regular polygon is a polygon whose sides are all the same length and whose angles are all the same. What is a regular polygon?

4. The sides are not all the same length. The angles are not all the same. These are not examples of regular polygons.

5. triangle What is a three-sided polygon? Let’s look at some different kinds of polygons.
