Here,

∠1, ∠2, ∠3, ∠4, ∠5 and ∠6 are the exterior angles of Regular Polygon.

 

All exterior angles of a Regular Polygon are equal.

 

∴ ∠1 = ∠2 = ∠3 = ∠4 = ∠5 = ∠6.         

 

Let’s find the value of exterior angles

 

Value of exterior angles

All exterior angles of a regular Polygon  are equal.

∴ ∠1 = ∠2 = ∠3 = ∠4 = ∠5 = ∠6 = x

 

We know that

Sum of all exterior angles = 360°

 x + x + x + x + x + x = 360°

    6x  = 360°

       x = (360°)/6

If number of sides are n ,

  Exterior angle = (360°)/n

where n is the number of sides of regular polygon
