Hi Everyone,
I have trying to find out the procedure for constructing a regular 17sided polygon. I know it was Gauss who discovered the method and is based on the formula
2^2^k + 1
I have tried to find it from the WWW but I was unable to find anything.
Anyone cares to to show me or recommend any reading materials, books or online WWW.
Thank you
Peter Hung
