Polygons
Polygons are closed plane figures formed by three or more line segments.  If a figure is open or curved, it cannot be considered a polygon.  Concave polygons have at least one diagonal that does not pass through the interior of the polygon; all of the diagonals in a convex polygon are contained within the figure.  Equiangular polygons have all angles congruent; equilateral polygons have all sides congruent.

I have done this and it is most valuable.
