## What do you call a point where two sides of a polygon meet?

The points where two edges meet are the polygon’s vertices (singular: vertex) or corners. The interior of a solid polygon is sometimes called its body. An n-gon is a polygon with n sides; for example, a triangle is a 3-gon.

## What is a point where two sides meet?

Vertex – point where two sides meet. Two or more of these points are called vertices.

**Where do sides meet in a polygon?**

A point where two sides meet is a vertex (plural form is vertices). Any two sides determine an interior angle of the polygon; an exterior angle is formed by a side and an adjacent side extended.

**What is triangle vertex?**

A point where any two sides of a triangle meet, is called a vertex of a triangle.

### What is a 10 sided shape?

decagon

heptacontagon . Answer (1 of 25): A ten sided object (polyhedron) is known as a decahedron (three dimensional) while a ten sided two dimensional figure (polygon) is known as a decagon.

### Is any 3 sided polygon a triangle?

A three-sided polygon is a triangle. There are several different types of triangle (see diagram), including: Equilateral – all the sides are equal lengths, and all the internal angles are 60°. Isosceles – has two equal sides, with the third one a different length.

**Where two sides meet is called?**

Answer: In geometry, a vertex (in plural form: vertices or vertexes), often denoted by letters such as , , , , is a point where two or more curves, lines, or edges meet. As a consequence of this definition, the point where two lines meet to form an angle and the corners of polygons and polyhedra are vertices.

**Can a polygon have 2 sides?**

In geometry, a digon is a polygon with two sides (edges) and two vertices. Its construction is degenerate in a Euclidean plane because either the two sides would coincide or one or both would have to be curved; however, it can be easily visualised in elliptic space.

#### What is a vertex example?

Vertex typically means a corner or a point where lines meet. For example a square has four corners, each is called a vertex. A square for example has four vertices. The word vertex is most commonly used to denote the corners of a polygon.

**Where is the vertex on a triangle?**

Triangle properties The vertex (plural: vertices) is a corner of the triangle. Every triangle has three vertices. The base of a triangle can be any one of the three sides, usually the one drawn at the bottom.
