Brainsteem Mathematics Challenges: Angles in a Pentagon

in mathematics •  5 months ago

The largest angle is 112 degrees.

The first step is knowing that the sum of the interior angles of a n-sided polygon adds up to 180(n-2) degrees.

For a pentagon, that is 540 degrees, with an average interior angle of 108 degrees. Since we want a sequence of consecutive even numbers, that sequence is 104, 106, 108, 110, 112.

Agreed that 112 degrees is the largest interior angle of the said pentagon.
This sounds interesting @rycharde!

Thanks, have you tried the extension?
