What is the maximum exterior angle possible for a regular polygon?

 


To find the maximum exterior angle of a regular polygon, we will have to take the lowest possible number of sides (i.e., an equilateral triangle).


Now,


The exterior angle of this triangle will be the maximum exterior angle possible for any regular polygon


Exterior angle of an equilateral triangle = 360o/3


= 120o


Hence, the maximum possible measure of exterior angle for any polygon is 120o.
