To construct a regular 5-gon , first draw a circle with the center O. Then proceed to find on the circle the vertices V1, V2, V3 and V5 of the
Regular pentagon as follows:
Label any point on the circle V1 and draw OB perpendicular to OV1 .
Join V1 to C, the midpoint of OB.
Bisect angle OCV1 to obtain the point N, OV1.
Construct the perpendicular to OV1 at N and obtain the point V2
