# Math 8_ October 2

Today in class we…

* Discussed complementary angles and supplementary angles as a warm up

* Reviewed Homework questions on the sum of interior angles in a polygon

– found a formula for finding the sum of interior angles  (sum = (n-2)180  ) where n is the number of            sides of a polygon.

* Took a quiz

Warm up:

HOMEWORK Due Oct 3: Oct_ 2 Angles Sum Baseball HW

Answer with proof (picture) for candy!

Three mathematicians are applying for a job. There are five hats, three white, two black. They’re lined up, and a hat is placed on each. The first person in line cannot see any hat; the second in line sees only the hat of the person in front of him; the third person sees only the hats of the two people in front of her. The first person to correctly figure out what color hat he has gets the job; you guess wrong and you are killed. Assume these are INTELLIGENT mathematicians, and that they will do the logically correct thing at each stage — if something can be deduced, they will figure it out. After a long pause, the first person, who cannot see any hats, says he knows the color of his hat. What is the color, and how does he know?
