- A simple closed curve made up of only line segments is called a polygon.
- A diagonal of a polygon is a line segment connecting two nonconsecutive vertices.
- A convex polygon is a polygon in which no portion of its any diagonal is in its exterior.
- A quadrilateral is a polygon having only four sides.
- A regular polygon is a polygon whose all sides are equal and also all angles are equal.
- The sum of interior angles of a polygon of n sides is (n-2) straight angles.
- The sum of interior angles of a quadrilateral is 360°.
