Worksheet: Convex and Concave Polygons

In this worksheet, we will practice classifying polygons as convex or concave.


Consider convex polygons.

Select the definition of a convex polygon.

  • AA polygon is convex if it contains one or more interior angles greater than 180∘.
  • BA polygon is convex if all of the line segments drawn between two points, on or inside the polygon, are contained within the polygon.
  • CA polygon is convex if it contains one or more interior angles less than 180∘.
  • DA polygon is convex if some of its vertices point β€œinward,” toward the center.

Which of these properties is true of a convex polygon?

  • AA line drawn through a convex polygon, depending on exactly where you draw it, can intersect the polygon in more than two places.
  • BSome of the diagonals of a convex polygon will lie outside the polygon.
  • CAll of its internal angles are at most 180 degrees.
  • DSome of its internal angles are less than 180 degrees.


In a pentagon 𝐴𝐡𝐢𝐷𝐸, π‘šβˆ π΄=110∘, π‘šβˆ π·=62∘, π‘šβˆ πΈ=89∘, and π‘šβˆ π΅=π‘šβˆ πΆ.

Decide whether 𝐴𝐡𝐢𝐷𝐸 is convex or concave.

  • AThe given information is not enough.
  • BConcave
  • CConvex
