## What is a plane eight sided shape called?

Regular octagon

In geometry, an octagon (from the Greek ὀκτάγωνον oktágōnon, “eight angles”) is an eight-sided polygon or 8-gon….Octagon.

Geometric Plane Shapes: Circles, Triangles, Rectangles, Squares, and Trapezoids

- The Circle.
- The Triangle.
- The Rectangle.

### Is a plane figure bounded by eight sides?

The definition of a polygon is a geometric figure with straight sides and angles. An example of a polygon is a octagon, a figure with eight sides. A closed plane figure bounded by three or more line segments.

### What are plane figures and solid figures?

A plane figure is a geometric figure having no thickness. Examples: Few of the plane shapes are square, circle, rectangle, triangle etc. Solid figure: Solid shapes are three-dimensional figures that have length, breadth, and height as the three dimensions. Examples: Few of the solid shapes are cube, cuboid, sphere etc.

**What do you call the distance around plane figures?**

The perimeter of a plane figure is the distance around it.

## How many sides does a closed plane figure have?

A polygon is a closed plane figure formed only using line segments. The line segments are called sides. A polygon has at least three sides. There are many classifications of polygons; they are often classified based on the number of sides in the polygon.

## Which is a plane shape with straight sides?

A polygon is a plane shape with straight sides. Is it a Polygon? Polygons are 2-dimensional shapes. They are made of straight lines, and the shape is “closed” (all the lines connect up). Polygon comes from Greek.

**What are the two types of plane figures?**

The two most common types of non-polygonal plane figures we see in Geometry are a circle and an ellipse. A circle is a plane figure formed by the set of all points in a plane that are equidistant from a given, fixed point, called the center. An ellipse is a plane figure in the shape of an oval.

### When is a plane figure not a polygon?

There are many classifications of polygons; they are often classified based on the number of sides in the polygon. An n-sided polygon is called an n-gon. If any side or part of a plane figure is curved (not straight) it is not a polygon.
