    Answer:

    vertices in total will coincide = 1174/2 = 587

    Step-by-step explanation:

    1st polygon: 1174 sides, 1174 vertex, arc for between 2 vertex= 360°/1174 (arc1)

    2nd polygon: 2935 sides, 2935 vertex, arc for between 2 vertex= 360°/2935 (arc2)

    360°/1174 = (360°/2935) x (5/2)  (every 2.5 arc2 = 1 arc1)

    It means every 5 arc2 = 2 arc1, this is the 2nd vertex coincide

    vertices in total will coincide = 1174/2 = 587

    check: 2935/5 = 587
