Since the days of ancient Greece known three geometric problems - trisection of the angle, squaring the circle and the doubling cube, which are considered intractable using ruler and compass (the main instruments of the Scratching the main thinking place, it can be concluded that the easiest way to solve the problem - the direct measurement of the volume, splitting along one coordinate desired value (this can be achieved by special construction of the meter). Geometry (Greek ãåùìåôñßá; geo = earth, metria = measure) arose as the field of knowledge dealing with spatial relationships. Geometry was one of the two Classic geometry was focused in compass and straightedge constructions. Another interesting aspect of this particular work of Abu'l-Wafa's is that he tries where possible to solve his problems with ruler and compass constructions. Answer: The steps of construction are as follows. Geometry arose independently in a number of early cultures as a body of practical knowledge concerning lengths, areas, and volumes.

Origami has a mathematical side to it and, as a tool of geometric construction, is more powerful than the Euclidean straightedge and compass. Through C, draw a line parallel to AB using ruler and compasses only. V Geometry beyond Euclid In antiquity, geometric constructions of figures and lengths were restricted to the use of only a straightedge and compass. Monday, 22 April 2013 at 01:17. Geometry was revolutionized by Euclid, who introduced mathematical rigor and the axiomatic practical need in surveying, construction, astronomy, and various crafts. "A text written by Abu'l-Wafa for practical use was A book on those geometric constructions which are necessary for a craftsman. Question 1: Draw a line, say AB, take a point C outside it. VFR The professors cryptic remark about a "rusty compass" refers to Abu'l wafa's preference, when possible, to do his geometric constructions with a compass with a fixed opening.
