Will some one please provide me with the algorithm for constructing, with compass and straightedge, a regular 17gon ? I think it will be a good way to get the importance of precision across to my Geometry students. Post it here, or email it to eduardo@coco.ca.rop.edu and I'll post it. Thanks in advance. Eduardo B.
