Re: all about polygon

Those questions do not make any reasonable sense at all. What exactly is the wording of the questions on the assignment?

Re: all about polygon

The question is:

who discovered polygon with 35 sides?

You might as well ask who discovered the square, or who discovered the sphere. mad

Re: all about polygon

Maybe marivical means who found the construction (i don't know if it even exists though)

Re: all about polygon

Can you construct a 35-sided polygon with compass & straightedge at all? neutral

Re: all about polygon

If people from Ancient Greeks could construct a pentagon and a heptagon, I am sure that some good mathematicians can make it because 35 is just 5 x 7.
