8-5 Classifying Polygons
Triangles and rectangles are examples of
polygons. A polygon is a closed plane figure
formed by three or more line segments. Each
line segment forms a side of the polygon, and
meets, but does not cross, another line
segment at a common point. This common point
is a vertex of a polygon.
