Construction of polygons inscribed in a circle 2
In this video I will continue with the video of the construction of polygons inscribed in circles 1. These examples are somewhat more complicated than those in the previous video, therefore I recommend that you watch the first video first.
Polygons are bounded surfaces formed by different finite lines that close a region on a plane. The vertices of polygons they are the point where two segments or lines meet.
If the problem tells us to find a polygon inscribed in a circle, it means that the polygon has to be inside this circumference and cannot go outside of it. In the image we see some examples of more complicated polygons.
If we know the radius of this circumference we will be able to find the regular polygons that they ask us, we just have to indicate how many sides the polygon has and with the help of a compass and the ruler we can solve the trouble.
In the video I explain in more detail with the help of a compass, the rule Y pencils, the way to find the polygons inscribed in a circle.
Also, if you have any questions about what you have seen in the video you can do the printable exercises with their solutions that I have left you on the web.
