In geometry, a polygon is a closed two-dimensional shape with straight sides. It is formed by connecting multiple line segments called edges. A polygon consists of vertices (corner points) and edges that connect these vertices. The edges do not cross each other, and the last vertex is connected to the first vertex, creating a closed shape. Polygons can have different numbers of sides, ranging from three to infinity.

A polygon shape represents a specific instance of a polygon. It defines the exact coordinates of its vertices, allowing for the precise representation of…
