The sum of the interior angles of a pentagon is 180(5  2) = 540 degrees. So each of the 5 interior angles is 108 degrees. We can decompose a regular pentagon into 10 congruent right triangles thereby splitting each angle of 108 into two equal angles of 54 degrees.

Ski, something a bit different; try this: an isosceles triangle, equal sides = 1, vertex = 1 degree. Calculate area. Multiply area by 360.
