Along with the problem of squaring a circle and trisection of an angle, there is one more great problem: quarisection of a disc.

You have a disk and have to dissect it into four parts of equal area with three chords coming from the same point on the disc's boundary (one of these chords is a diameter).

What makes this problem impossible to solve with straightedge and compass?
