    Interior is (n-2)*180

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    That's the sum, but you can directly calculate the size of the interior angles and use it to find the number of sides.

    What's the method to finding interior angles?

    You can fins the interior angle of tile A from this diagram and so can find the number of sides of tile A.

    Angles should add to 360 degrees, so you should get 150 degrees.

    If you split the angle, then you get 30 degrees inside, and then because angles on a straight line add to 180 degrees, you would get 150 degrees

    You have to split the angle because, it has to be a STRAIGHT line I know it's complicated but once you get the hang of it, you'll be fine

    You may be able to spot that the angle that is 30 degrees is actually the exterior angle of the polygon tile A.

    Ok, so now you have the interior angle.

    btw, you didn't need the interior angle but it's good to have it because it makes it easier to understand how you got the exterior angle

    Ok, so the for mula for the exterior angle is 360/number of sides.

    You know that the exterior is 30 degrees, so you can rearrange the formula. So to get the number of sides the formula becomes 360/30, which equals to 12, so tile A has 12 sides

    For this do I find the exterior angle and subtract that from 360?

    Yeah, but remember I told you if you SPLIT the angle in Tile B, you get the exterior angle of Tile A.
