  1. Sir, I am having problem in visualizing the fractions in other polygons, can you please post something in that regard. I was breaking an octagon into fractions as you broke a hexagon into 24 and couldn’t really get the diagram correct.

  2. An octagon is a much less convenient figure, so don’t worry! The regular hexagon is unique in that in can be easily broken into a lot of smaller figures and hence is very popular in exams. (Somewhat like the Carbon atom which is unique in Chemistry because it combines so easily with so many other things). Play with the hexagon (and to a lesser extent the square) to begin with, they are the ones on which such “break into parts” questions can realistically come.
