Number of sides :- 8 Sides.

Solution

  • Let the number of sides and angles of the polygon be 'n'.

  • The formula for the sum S of the n interior angles of an n- sided polygon is S=(n−2)×180°

  • Since the polygon is regular, all its n interior angles are the same.

Therefore the sum of them is n×135° =135n°

So, we also have S =135n°

So, setting angels equal as shown below:

(n−2)×180° =135n

 \mathtt{⇒(n−2)×180=135n}

\mathtt{⇒180(n−2)=135n}

 \mathtt{⇒180n−360=135n}

 \mathtt{⇒180n−135n=360}

 \mathtt{⇒45n=360}

 \color{green}\ { \boxed{ \mathtt{{⇒n=8}}}}

So, the regular polygon has 8 sides and is therefore, an octagon.
