Triangle Δ (3), Square (4), Pentagon (5), Hexagon (6), Heptagon(7), Octagon(8)… How long it can go?
A Megagon is a shape with 1,000,000 equal sides. Even if drawn at the size of the Earth, a regular megagon would be very difficult to distinguish from a circle.
How many you know before? How to draw a perfect polygon with 10 sides? Know more here… (To see how to draw them? Scroll down the table)
|Number of sides||Name of polygon||Picture|
|100||Regular Hectagon||Internal Angle 176.40°External Angle 3.60°|
|1000||Regular Chiliagon||A whole regular chiliagon is not visually discernible from a circle. The lower section is a portion of a regular chiliagon, 200 times as large as the smaller one, with the vertices highlighted.Internal Angle = 179.64°|
|10000||Regular Myriagon||Internal Angle = 179.96°|
|1,000,000||Regular Megagon||Even if drawn at the size of the Earth, a regular megagon would be very difficult to distinguish from a circle.Internal Angle = 179.99964°|
