interior angles adds to : 540 (360+180)

540/7 =~ 77.1

simplified septagram is a quard + a triangle.
sum of angles= (360 + 180) = 540

it's a regular septa., thus, 540/7

agree partially with wondergmat, 360/7=51,4 but think we should divide this by 2 since this is an interior angle. If the star is 5 point 360/5= 72┬░ this is the degree of the respective sector of the circle , but the point angle is 72/2=36┬░, if i understand correctly what point angle means. My answer is 51.4/2=25.7┬░

yeah... a correct approach. Inscribe a septigram into a circle and play with central angles.

PA=360/[7*2]=360/14=25.71
