1. Exterior angle of a polygon
The angle formed by a side of a polygon and the extension of its adjacent side
2. Exterior Angles of a transversal
Exterior angles are created where a
crosses two (usually parallel) lines. Each pair of these angles are outside the parallel lines, and on the same side of the transversal. Each pair of exterior angles is
supplementary (add up to 180°).
