Do you see any patterns here? Describe the patterns in words or symbols. Ans. The number of diagonals from 1 vertex is three less than the number of sides: d = s - 3. The total number of diagonals is 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + ... + (s - 3) + (s - 3). List the number of new diagonals from each vertex to verify this. This sum is the total number of diagonals. This sum is because this equals s - 3 more than the sum of the first s - 3 counting numbers.
