# How many vertices are on a five-pointed star?

Question #34323. Asked by Mandy. (May 25 03 5:15 PM)

Pentagrams are five-pointed stars. They are regular polygons with five vertices and five edges. The sides just happen to cross each other at five points of intersection which outline the small interior pentagon, but those are not vertices and the smaller segments are not complete sides. Mathematically, the pentagram is special for being the simplest nonconvex regular polygon.

my understanding of a pentagram (5 pointed star) is that it has 5 vertices and 10 edges as per the drawing in this site....
