Growing Polygons Problem

 Construct a square on one side of an equilateral triangle.  On one non-adjacent side of the square, construct a regular pentagon, as shown.  On a non-adjacent side of the pentagon, construct a regular hexagon.  Continue to construct regular polygons in the same way until you construct an octagon.  How many sides does the resulting polygon have?
