    oo and one more question,

    a regular polygon has an interior angle that is 8 times bigger than its exterior angle. how many sides does this polygon have?

    thank you

    Answer to 1)

    I am not sure if i did this right but i applied l'hopitals rule about 4 times and obtained
    -2 as a final answer.

    Answer to 2)

    This one is quite simple if you apply the rules of polygons.

    sum of exterior angles = 360 degrees

    sum of interior angles of an n-sided regular polygon = (n-2)*180

    think it gives 18 but may have got that wrong too
    everything is mathematical.

    yes, it is in fact -2, i tried it also and got the same answer, and same goes for the other angle one, got 18 sides too.

    anyway thank you for the confirmation of the answer.
