## In the Geometry app below,

1) Use the POLYGON tool to construct pentagon

*ABCDE*. 2) Select the ANGLE tool. Then click anywhere inside the polygon. 3) Go to the Algebra view (click calculator icon upper left). 4) Calculate the**sum of the measures of the interior angles of this pentagon**, making sure to add the Greek letters (and not single numerical values)! If you forget how to do this, click here to see it again in the context of a triangle.Select the MOVE tool in the app above. Move any one (or more) of the triangle's vertices around. What can we conclude about the **sum of the measures of the interior angles** of any pentagon?

## Here, in this app, we have a pentagon with its EXTERIOR ANGLES shown. Calculate the SUM of the measures of these exterior angles here in this app.

Select the MOVE tool. Move any one (or more) of the triangle's vertices around.
What can we conclude about the **exterior angles** of this pentagon? *Be specific in your response. *
