## Top best answers to the question «What is the smallest degree of rotation needed to map the polygon back on to itself»

The **smallest degree of rotation** is called the **angle of rotation**. This can be calculated by dividing the angle of full rotation by the number of sides of a regular polygon. Since a full rotation is 360 degrees, we divide 360 by 24. Thus, the **smallest rotation needed to map the polygon back** to itself is 15 degrees.
