set square

The geometers of ancient Greece invented a peculiar game for themselves, a game called Construction, whose objective is to draw various geometric figures of interest. We are permitted to use just two instruments: an unmarked straightedge (a ‘ruler’), and a compass. Using these, we can draw a straight line through any given pair of points, and we can draw a circle with any given point as centre and passing through any other given point. (Oh yes, we also possess a pencil and an eraser, please do not feel worried about that!)
