Icosikaihenagon, or also known as Henicosagon.

21 sided polygon: icosikaihenagon or henicosagon

The sum is 3420 as the equation for every regular polygon is (n-2)*180 when n is number of sides

The term for a 21 sided polygon is an icosikaihenagon. Icosi is the Greek for the numerical 20 and henagon means 1.

Applying systematic polygon names to regular polygons between 20 and 99 sides, a 21-sided polygon would be called an icosikaihenagon.

This is a 21 sided polygon and therefore has 21 angles. NOTE : The name supplied for this polygon is an artificial name and never used in practice. General usage refers to this shape as a 21-gon.

You can either call them by n-gon for n sides (i.e. 21-gon) or combine a prefix and suffix (i.e. Icosikaihenagon).

Here is an excerpt from John Conway, a very famous mathematician in which he describes how he names the regular polygons.Conway says:"Antreas Hatzipolakis and I worked out a complete system up to the millions from which this is taken, and which has also been "vetted" by several other scholars. The most important of the reasons which make me prefer the "Kai" forms is that they permit these prefixes to be unambiguously parsed even when concatenated, as they are in Kepler's names for certain polyhedra; for example, the icosidodecahedron or (20,12)-hedron, so called because it has 20 faces of one type and 12 of another. Kepler said "this particular triacontakaidihedron I call the icosidodecahedron", a remark showing that he also preferred the Kai forms." Now using this we have: 1 monogon 2 digon 3 trigon, triangle 4 tetragon, quadrilateral 5 pentagon 6 hexagon 7 heptagon 8 octagon 9 enneagon 10 decagon 11 hendecagon 12 dodecagon 13 triskaidecagon 14 tetrakaidecagon, tetradecagon 15 pentakaidecagon, pentadecagon 16 hexakaidecagon, hexadecagon 17 heptakaidecagon 18 octakaidecagon 19 enneakaidecagon 20 icosagon 21 icosikaihenagon, icosihenagon 22 icosikaidigon 23 icosikaitrigon 24 icosikaitetragon 25 icosikaipentagon 26 icosikaihexagon 27 icosikaiheptagon 28 icosikaioctagon 29 icosikaienneagon 30 triacontagon 31 triacontakaihenagon 32 triacontakaidigon 33 triacontakaitrigon 34 triacontakaitetragon 35 triacontakaipentagon 36 triacontakaihexagon 37 triacontakaiheptagon 38 triacontakaioctagon 39 triacontakaienneagon 40 tetracontagon 41 tetracontakaihenagon 42 tetracontakaidigon 43 tetracontakaitrigon 44 tetracontakaitetragon 45 tetracontakaipentagon 46 tetracontakaihexagon 47 tetracontakaiheptagon 48 tetracontakaioctagon 49 tetracontakaienneagon 50 pentacontagon ... 60 hexacontagon ... 70 heptacontagon ... 80 octacontagon ... 90 enneacontagon ... 100 hectogon, hecatontagon 1000 chiliagon 10000 myriagon The "gon" has an interesting etymology: it is ultimately derived from the Greek word "gonu" for "knee", which they transferred to "angle". This word goes straight back to the Indo-European, and is essentially the same in lots of languages: gonu (Greek) genu (Latin) k nee (English) Having said this, if you cannot remember the term, it is safe to use the natural number, n and say an n-gon. So 32 sided polygon can be called a 32-gon and this terminology is widely used and understood among mathematicians. It is very nice to use the correct word, however, often times the price of using it is that many people do not understand what you mean.
