# Find the nu

Answer :

i. We know that the decagon has 10 vertices and each side and diagonal can be formed by joining two vertices of a hexagon,

We know that decagon has 10 sides,

Let us assume the no. of diagonals of the hexagon are N,

N = (no. of lines formed on joining any two vertices) – (no. of sides of the hexagon)

N = 10C2 – 10

We know that ,

And also n! = (n)(n – 1)......2.1   N = 45 – 10

N = 35

The total no. of diagonals formed is 35.

ii. Given that we need to find the no. of triangles that can be drawn in a decagon.

We know that 3 points are required to draw a triangle.

We know that decagon has 10 sides

Let us assume the no. of triangles formed be N1,

N1 = (total no. of triangles formed by all 10 points)

N1 = 10C3

We know that ,

And also n! = (n)(n – 1)......2.1   N1 = 120

The total no. of ways of different lines formed are 120.
