Total number of lines that can be drawn using the $n$ vertices of the polygon

$=^nC_2=\large\frac{n.(n-1)}{2}$.

Out of these lines $n$ lines are the $n$ sides of the polygon.

The remaining lines are diagonals of the poygon.

$\therefore$ The no. of diagonals $=^nC_2-n=\large\frac{n.(n-1)}{2}$$-n$

$=\large\frac{n.(n-3)}{2}$
