- Polygon[ <Point>, ..., <Point> ]
- Returns a polygon defined by the given points.
**Example:**`Polygon[(1, 1), (3, 0), (3, 2), (0, 4)]`

yields a quadrilateral.

- Polygon[ <Point>, <Point>, <Number of Vertices> ]
- Creates a regular polygon with
*n*vertices. **Example:**`Polygon[(1, 1), (4, 1), 6]`

yields a hexagon.

- Polygon[ <List of Points> ]
- Returns a polygon defined by the points in the list.
**Example:**`Polygon[{(0, 0), (2, 1), (1, 3)}]`

yields a triangle.

- Polygon[ <Point>, <Point>, <Number of Vertices n>, <Direction> ]
- Creates a regular polygon with
*n*vertices, and directed by the*direction*(e.g. a plane to which the polygon will be parallel, if possible).

**Note:**See also Polygon and Regular Polygon tools.
