[Tex/LaTex] How to make a 16-gon


How would I make a 16-gon only showing the vertices? I want to number the vertices and then connect certain ones with lines. I literally just started using TikZ in LaTeX so help would be appreciated.

An n-gon showing only the vertices is a circle. So it won't make too much difference but TikZ has a geometric shapes library. To show only the vertices remove the draw option from the first node.

\node[regular polygon,regular polygon sides=16,minimum size=5cm,draw] (a){};
\foreach \x in {1,...,16}{\node[circle,fill,inner sep=1pt] at (a.corner \x) {};}
