The word interior is important. You cannot choose one point inside and one point outside the figure.
The figure above with six sides meets this criteria and therefore is a convex polygon.
No matter how I choose two points inside this polygon, the line segment joining these two points will always be inside the figure.Notice that a triangle such as an isosceles triangle, a scalene triangle, a right triangle, or an obtuse triangle is always a convex polygon.
