So the sum of exterior angles of a polygon = (n-2)×180

Therefore sum becomes 540

And a+b+c+d+40=540

And thus 500

Sum of exterior angles of a regular polygon = 360
a+b+c+d+40=360
a+b+c+d=320

In terms of interior angles:

The sum of interior angles of an n-sided polygon = (n - 2)*180 = (5-2)*180 = 3*180 degrees

The interior angles are supplementary to angles a, b, c, d and 40 degrees.
180 - a + (180 - b) + (180 - c) + (180 - d) + (180 - 40) = 3*180
a + b + c + d = 320 degrees

Answer (B)
