Definition

Adjacent Side to Vertex

Each vertex of a polygon is formed by the intersection of two sides.

The two sides that form a particular vertex are referred to as the adjacents of that vertex, or described as adjacent to that vertex.


Adjacent Sides

Two sides of a polygon that meet at the same vertex are adjacent to each other.


Adjacent Vertex to Side

Each side of a polygon intersects two other sides, and so is terminated at either endpoint by two vertices.

The two vertices that terminate a particular side are referred to as the adjacents of that side, or described as adjacent to that side.


Adjacent Vertices

Those two vertices are described as adjacent to each other.
