  1. Felipe set his hinged mirror so that its angle was 36° and the core region was isosceles, as shown at right. Homework Help ✎

    1. How many sides did his resulting polygon have? Show how you know.

    2. What is another name for this polygon?

How many times does 36° go into 360°?

Since 360° ÷ 36° = 10, his regular polygon will have 10 sides.
