Geometry Word Problem Worksheet

This worksheet presents a math problem focused on understanding the concept of diagonals in polygons. The problem asks how many diagonals an octagon has, where a diagonal is defined as a line segment that connects non-adjacent vertices in a polygon. An illustration is provided showing a complex network of line segments inside a polygon, which likely represents the diagonals within that shape.

The worksheet aims to teach students about the geometric properties of polygons, specifically the calculation of diagonals in an octagon. It encourages analytical thinking by asking students to identify patterns and apply them to figure out the number of diagonals. Additionally, it might be introducing the formula for calculating the number of diagonals in an n-sided polygon, which is (n (n – 3)) / 2, where n is the number of sides in the polygon.
