Trying to construct a regular pentagon using only a pair of compasses and a
straight edge. Can it be done ? My level of math knowledge is high school.
Please e mail me with the solution & proof if possible; or give me an URL where
I can find the answer on the web.
And how about septagons....
Many thanks
