    In general the sum of the interior angle of a closed shape with m sides (a "m-gon") is equal to 180*(m-2). Because by drawing lines from a corner to all the non-adjacent corners we can draw exactly (m-2) triangles inside the "m-gon", such that the total sum of the sum of interior angles of all triangles will ...
