1
Decagon = 10 sides
Interior angle is given by, 180-360/n = 180-360/10 = 180-36 = 144.

E is the answer.

each interior angle
10 sided
180-360/10 = 144
IMO E

Sum of all angles will be (n-2) * 180

n = 10 here, 8 * 180 = 1440

1440/10 = 144

E

=>

The sum of all interior angles of n-gon is \((n-2)*180°.\)
A decagon is a \(10\)-gon.
The sum of all interior angles is \((10-2)* 180° = 8*180°.\)
And each interior angle of a regular decagon has measure \(\frac{8*180°}{10} = 8*18° = 144°.\)

Therefore, the answer is E.
Answer: E
