# FInd the number of diagonals that can be drawn for a pentagon.

**To do:** Find the number of diagonals that can be drawn for a pentagon.

**Solution:**

The number of diagonals of any polygon can be calculated using the formula $n\times\frac{nâˆ’3}{2}$

where n is the number of sides

A pentagon has 5 sides

So number of diagonals = $5\times\frac{5-3}{2}$

= 5

**Therefore , 5 diagonals can be drawn for a pentagon.**
