I may be dull, but my nonagon page is hot, hot, hot!!!

I have been writing this blog for about five years now. It has catalogued my ups and downs, my sorrows and my joys, but do you know which is my most popular page? Is it the story of my attempt to gain my Degree? Or my sorrow at the loss of my father? Is it my article on plastic surgery or the frustration of being a mum? No. No to all these worthy themes...

The most visited page on this blog, by a long chalk, is my post on Year 8 homework and how to work out the interior angles of a nonagon... Yes, I know. It was hardly worth pouring out my soul was it? I could have just borrowed a book on maths problems from the library and worked my way through it!!



I am glad that I have proved useful over the last five years. I would appear to be totally lacking in any entertainment value, but my educational and mathematical skills have hit an all time high. I plan now to work towards a fully interactive web site covering various shapes, their angles and how to work them out.... not.

I would love to know why people are so fascinated... If you are one of my mathematical visitors, please let me know!!!

While it is true that many have plastic surgery to make themselves look younger or even better,there are a lot of people who have these types of procedures for motives connected with their own health or similar purposes.Many times a person may have conditions that involve plastic surgery because of a severe illness. In some cases a person could have dropped a lot of weight because of a sickness and so they might need surgery to help them accommodate the quick loss of bodyweight. Learn more:

Now, you didn't link to the page with your workings, but being a nerdy scientific type I started to work it out: you can draw nine triangles inside, which will each be 360/9 at the centre...

At this point I stopped, because I really don't need to know about the interior angles of a nonagon. But I couldn't help myself!

Dan - may I suggest you read my post before you comment? I am aware of the myriad uses for plastic surgery and this post is about the internal angles of a nonagon.

Lola, you are quite right - I should have linked to my other post. I will change it so that you can see what I wrote ( if you are interested!)
