In a **regular** pentagon, there are no right angles. A
regular pentagon is one that has 5 equal sides and 5 equal angles.
The sum of the 5 angles is 540 degrees. This is found by
subtracting 2 from the number of sides and multiplying by 180
degrees. For a regular pentagon the formula would be (5 - 2) * 180
= 540. This works for all polygons. Just replace the 5 with the
number of side in the polygon. A good website to visit for this is
http://regentsprep.org/Regents/math/poly/LPoly1.htm. A
**non-regular** pentagon can have right angles. Home plate on a
baseball field would be an example. **Original Answer** Nope, it
has 5 **angles** of 72 degrees each.
