# Worksheet: Convex and Concave Polygons

Q1:

Consider convex polygons.

Select the definition of a convex polygon.

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

Which of these properties is true of a convex polygon?

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