Abstract

In this paper, we have tried to indicate the own properties of polygons in Galilean geometry using the Affine concepts as well. The relationships between an angle and a side as well as the relationships between altitudes and medians concepts, and comparison of some special polygons have been examined carefully. In addition, the area concept has been mentioned. Finally, the paper was completed with a new idea, Theorem 6.
