# Math Help - Degrees of a ten sided figure

1. ## Degrees of a ten sided figure

Hi the question is:
How many degrees are there between two adjacent sides of a regular ten sided figure- Ans is 144
I am aware the sum of degrees in a ten sided figure will be (n-2)180 so in this case 1440 degrees
So each angle will have 144 degrees. However I am confused by the question.
It requires degrees between two adjacent sides ? Could anyone please explain these ??

"Adjacent" means "next to each other." So two adjacent sides will form a $144^{\circ}$ interior angle.
