What is the minim

Answer :

To find the maximum exterior angle of a regular polygon, we will have to take the lowest possible number of sides (i.e., an equilateral triangle).


The exterior angle of this triangle will be the maximum exterior angle possible for any regular polygon

Exterior angle of an equilateral triangle = 360o/3

= 120o

Hence, the maximum possible measure of exterior angle for any polygon is 120o.

And, we know that an exterior angle and an interior angle are always in a linear pair

Hence, minimum interior angle = 180o − 120°

= 60o
