All of the exterior angles of a polygon sum to 360

 

360/15 = 24 sides

The sum of exterior angles in a n-sided polygon will always remain at a consistent 360 degress

 

To find the n, the number of sides, we have to divide the total angle measure by the measure of each exterior angle

 

360 / 15 = 24 

The polygon has 24 sides.
