Answer:
to form a side two points are necessary,so we need to select two points out of n points two form a line here
in n side polygon total number of lines formed =nc2
these lines will consist diagonals+sides
number of sides=n
so number of diagonals=nc2-n
                                 ={n(n-1)/2} - n
                                 =n(n-3)/2
