Rosebush Puzzle 3: Solution

Did you get this solution?



Visitor Jason Christianson describes this alternate solution:

Mark the three vertices of an isosceles triangle. Draw the two legs from the top vertex to the bottom two vertices. Pick three points on one leg; reflect those points across the altitude and onto the opposite leg. Now construct three segments connecting each bottom vertex to those three new points on the opposite leg. Last, drop a segment straight down from the top vertex, passing through all the points of intersection. Mark the point at the end of this line, and at all the intersections.
