A polygon has 44 diagonals. The no. of sides of the polygon = ?

$\begin{array}{1 1} 8 \\ 11 \\ 12 \\ 13 \end{array}$

1 Answer

Let the polygon be n sided.
The no. of lines that can be drawn using the vertices = $^nC_2$
This includes n lines which are sides.
$\therefore$ No. of diagonals = $^nC_2-n=\large\frac{n(n-1)}{2}$$-n=44\:(given)$
