No Limit To The Number Of Vertices In A Polygon

Q: Is there a limit to the number of vertices for a polygon?

A: There is no real limit to the number of vertices in a polygon. However, you must remember with a simple polygon the angle between vertices must be less than or equal to 180 degrees. If you need to have internal angles > 180 degrees you will have to use a general polygon instead.
