Question from Jackie, a student:

How can the measure of each angle of a regular quadrilateral be determined?

Hi Jackie,

A regular polygon is a shape whose sides are all the same length, and whose interior angles are all the same measure.

A quadrilateral is a polygon with four sides. So a regular quadrilateral is a shape that has four equal sides, with all the interior angles equal. The more common name for this shape is a square!

Does this help you find the angles?
