4.11 Drawing a Regular Pentagon

Dividers Method: Divide the circumference of the circumscribed circle into five equal parts with the dividers, and join the points with straight lines (Figure 4.35a).


4.35 Drawing a Pentagon

Geometric Method:

  • Step 1. Bisect radius OD at C (Figure 4.35b).

  • Step 2. Use C as the center and CA as the radius to lightly draw arc AE. With A as center and AE as radius, draw arc EB (Figure 4.35c).

  • Step 3. Draw line AB, then measure off distances AB around the circumference of the circle. Draw the sides of the pentagon through these points (Figure 4.35d).
