Drawing a Pentagon
Do not fold the compass after drawing the circle; you’ve just drawn a golden ratio. Even though this sounds like proof that the process is incorrect, I’ve done the math and it should work.
How do you construct a pentagon in a circle?
The procedure is as follows:
- Draw a circle in which to inscribe the pentagon and mark the center point O.
- Draw a horizontal line through the center of the circle.
- Construct a vertical line through the center.
- Construct the point M as the midpoint of O and B.
Can a pentagon be inscribed in a circle?
To inscribe a regular pentagon in a circle, first draw perpendicular radii OA and OB from the circle’s center O. Next, draw a perpendicular DE to OA to the circle. Finally, AE is one of the pentagon’s sides.
How do you make a pentagon with a compass?
Draw an arc that crosses line XO; we’ll call this intersection “R.” Move the point of the compass to A and extend it until the pencil touches R. Your compass’s radius is now equal to the length of the sides of your pentagram.
What is a 10 sided shape?
Answer (1 of 25): A decahedron (three-dimensional) is a ten-sided object (polyhedron), whereas a decagon is a ten-sided two-dimensional figure (polygon).
What are the angles of a pentagon?
A pentagon’s interior angles are all 108 degrees.
Which tool is used to draw a pentagon in computer?
However, the correct answer is ‘polygon tool,’ which is used in MS Paint to reshape any existing line. It can be used to draw any shape ranging from a rectangle to a hexagon by specifying the number of sides, so we’ll need this tool to draw a pentagon as well.
Does a pentagon have 5 angles?
A pentagon is a geometrical shape with five sides and five angles (where “Penta” means “five” and “gon” means “angle”). It is one of the types of polygons. A regular pentagon’s interior angles total 540 degrees.
