  1. 17 Sides By Mike Frost

  2. What Can You Construct with Straight Edge and Compass? Lengths can be multiplied

  3. Lengths can be halved by Dropping a Perpendicular

  4. Angles can be Halved

  5. Square Roots can be taken But you can’t: Trisect an Angle or take Cube Roots

  6. Constructing the Pentagon

  7. To construct a Polygon with a prime number of sides n, n must be a Fermat Prime, of the form: F0 = 3 Five known Fermat Primes N=0,1,2,3,4 F1 = 5 F2 = 17 F3 = 257 F4 = 65, 537 Carl Friedrich Gauss

  8. “Dr Euler’s Fabulous Formula” – by Paul Nahin

  9. Cos (2 π / 17) ... Cos (2 π / 3) = -0.5 Cos (2 π / 5) = (-1 + sqrt(5) ) / 4 Cos (2 π / 257) ?

  10. ...and Cos (2π/65,537) ??
