What you Need To Know...

Determine the measures of interior and exterior angles of polygons, justifying the method used.

  1. The benchmark will be assessed using MC (Multiple choice) and FR (Fill in Response) items.
  2. Items may be set in either real-world or mathematical contexts.

Example One

A regular hexagon and a regular heptagon share one side, as shown in the diagram below.

2-2

Which of the following is closest to the measure of x, the angle formed by one side of the hexagon and one side of the heptagon?

A. 102.9°
B. 111.4°
C. 120.0°
D. 124.5°
