Rational Equiangular Polygons
ABSTRACT

The main purpose of this note is to investigate equiangular polygons with rational edges. When the number of edges is the power of a prime, we determine simple, necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of such polygons. As special cases of our investigations, we settle two conjectures involving arithmetic polygons.
