How to Construct a Regular Heptadecagon (17-gon)
Euclid's Big Problem - Numberphile
German mathematician Carl Gauss came with a way how to construct heptadecagon, seventeen-sided polygon. From the times of ancient Greece, mathematicians were interested in the construction of polygons using only an idealized ruler and compass a drawing tool, not a navigational instrument. Gauss showed which regular polygons can be constructed. It was a breakthrough.
