 HOW TO DIVIDE A STRAIGHT ANGLE.docx (420.8 K)

Respected Sirs,

I would like to inform you that I have invented a geometrical method / construction, by which any angle can be divided into any number of equal parts.
So far I know, a few people had tried to trisect an angle, but failed to do so. My method can not only trisect but divide any angle into any no. of equal parts.

Please be kind enough to look into my method. If you find it all right and worth publishing in any international journal /magazine, kindly help me to bring out the same into the limelight.
And also , for the sake and benefit of all students who know how to divide a straight line but do not know as yet how to divide an angle into any no. of equal parts , kindly help me to publish my method worldwide without further delay .

I know my method is not 100% perfect but, I am sure that it is closest to the perfection and nearest to the accuracy as compared to the other methods, available with the Mathematicians. The magnitude of pi is not equal to 22/7 or 3.14 but this value is the nearest value as compared to the values given by other Scientists . Thus ,the magnitude of pi is accepted as 22/7 or 3.14 for calculation. Moreover , people have tried with acute angle for tri-section , but I have started trying with 180 degree for five equal parts.

Please also note that Theory and practice differ from each other. Practically, we can divide a st . line of 1 .5 metre into 7 equal parts vide Geometry. But, theoretically, it is not possible as, 1.4 is divisible by 7 , but 1.5 is not.
For the sake of students, artisans, engineers, for the sake of constructions or engineering drawings, for the benefit of Geometry to unfold so many things in near future with the help of my construction method I once again request you to help me out to publish my method in an International Journal .
