We know that if a polygon has n numbers of sides then we can form (n-2) triangles inside the polygon. In other words the sum of n interior angles are denoted by the sum of interior angles of (n-2) triangles.

So if the polygon has n sides;

`(n-2)xx180 = 2520`

`n-2 = 14`

`n = 16`

So the polygon has 16 sides.
