By Shivank Goel|Updated : August 5th, 2022

The octagon is an eight-sided two-dimensional geometrical figure.

It consists of 8 interior angles and 8 exterior angles. 

The sum of the interior angles is 1080°, and the sum of its exterior angles is 360°.

20 diagonals are present in an octagon.

It is classified into various types based on their sides and angles.

When all the sides and angles are equal, it is known as a regular octagon.

Convex octagons bulge outwards and have all the angles pointed outwards. A regular octagon is an example of a convex octagon.

For an n-sided polygon

Sum of interior angles of a polygon = (n - 2) x 180°

What is the sum of the angles of an octagon?

An octagon is an 8-sided polygon.

Sum of interior angles of a polygon = (8 - 2) x 180° = 1080°

Therefore, the sum of the angles of an octagon is 1080°

Summary:

What is the sum of the angles of an octagon?

The sum of the angles of an octagon is 1080°.
