    Geometry Help?

    Post by Redwan on Wed Jan 05, 2011 9:08 pm

    So, My science teacher gave my class a math problem.
    He said who ever solves the problem will get 10
    points in there next science report card. I need these
    10 points since i have a 97.89 as a science average and
    I want a hundred. I hope you guys could help. I hate being
    in 8th grade.

    The question is hard to state.
    So ....
    How can you inscribe any equilateral polygon (meaning a polygon with
    equal sides) in a circle with only using a ruler,compass and pencil and
    paper. I came up with couple of formulas but you need to use a calculator,
    so formulas don't help.

    Uh, how do you need a formula? You draw a straight line, use the compass, set it to the size of that line, line it each of the line you drew, then draw an arc, then intersection should be on a point on the circle and that'll be what you need to connect to
