Hi forum,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is a little challenge that I came up with that some of you may find interesting:-

Using only a compass, ruler and pencil, can you draw a circle, of any diameter you wish, and divide its circumference exactly into 360 equal sections?

It seems to me that oneshouldbe able to accomplish this using only high school (Euclidean) geometry, but I haven't achieved it yet myself.

Bear in mind that I'm not a mathematician. I'm sure that many of you could do this quite easily.

Best,
