Solution

We know that, 1c = `(180/pi)^circ`

∴ `(3pi^"c")/4 = ((3pi)/4 xx 180/pi)^circ` = 135°

Let the number of sides of the regular polygon be n.

∴ measure of an exterior angle = `(360°)/"n"`

Since, the sum of the measures of an interior angle and an exterior angle of a polygon =180°,

`135° + (360°)/"n"` = 180°

∴ `(360°)/"n"` = 180° - 135° = 45°

∴ n = `360/45`

= 8

Hence, the number of the sides in the polygon = 8.
