Polygon Polygon- a plane figure that (1) is formed by 3 or more segments, such that no two sides with a common endpt are collinear and (2) each side intersects exactly 2 other sides , 1 at each endpt. Means the figure is closed and no sides cross over each other. Vertex- the endpts of each side Think of them as the corner points!
