900/7 really. The sum of the internal angles of an n-gon is = (n-2)*180. ObConlang: "900/7" in Gladilatian is "mnathzut srmuznozla", literally "divided by seven". (Glad. is base 6, and 900 base 10 is 4100 base 6 (i.e. (twenty-four plus one) times thirty-six).) =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D Dennis Paul Himes <> homepage: Gladilatian page: =20 Disclaimer: "True, I talk of dreams; which are the children of an idle brain, begot of nothing but vain fantasy; which is as thin of substance = as the air." - Romeo & Juliet, Act I Scene iv Verse = 96-99
