A triangle has an average angle of 60 degrees. A quadrilateral has an average angle of 90 degrees. A figure with 24 sides has an average angle of 165 degrees. As the number of sides approaches infinity, what does the average angle measure approach?

the sum of the exterior angles of any ngon will always be 360 degrees, so the average exterior angle will be $\dfrac{360}{n} \implies$ the average interior angle will be $180  \dfrac{360}{n}$ $\displaystyle \lim_{n \to \infty} 180  \dfrac{360}{n}$
