How are polygons different from other types of Polygon?

If you could lift part of the polygon up and twist it, so two sides cross one another, and then put it down flat again, you would have a complex polygon. Because you twisted two sides, you still have those two sides (they do not double in number by crossing). They also do not create new vertices where they cross.

Can a simple polygon cross over a complex polygon?

A simplepolygon has only one boundary, and it doesn’t cross over itself. A complexpolygon intersects itself! Many rules about polygons don’t work when it is complex.

## What kind of Polygon has no self intersecting sides?

Simple polygons have no self-intersecting sides. Complex polygons, also called self-intersecting polygons, have sides that cross over each other. The classic star is a complex polygon. Most people can doodle a star on paper quickly, but few people label it a pentagram, complex polygon, or self-intersecting polygon.

### What are the different types of quadrilateral polygons?

Quadrilateral polygon is also called a four-sided polygon or a quadrangle. The different types of the quadrilateral polygon are square, rectangle, rhombus and parallelogram. The five-sided polygon is called pentagon polygon. When all the five sides of the polygon are equal in length, then it is called regular pentagon otherwise irregular pentagon.
