Draw a regular pentagon and join the opposite corners with a straight line.

I should just let this go, but I can't. 4-jaw you lost me on this one. I can see where you can make a pentagon from a five point star, by drawing a straight line from point to point.
But how do you draw a straight line to join the opposite corners. opposite each corner is a straight line. Inside your drawing I don't see a star at all.
I could see you using a protractor and the angles, by drawing a circle in the middle, and putting equal length lines to the point from the circle, I'm sorry I don't see what you have, to me it is a pentagon with a bunch of lines. I just miss it, but nobody ever claimed I was the brightest star on the tree.

Bob

I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.

If you start at the top (12:00 O'clock position) and draw a straight line to pentagon corners at the "5 O'clock position" and another to the corner at the "7 O'clock". Then start at the corner at the "2:30 position" and draw a line to the "7:00 O'clock" corner and another to the one at "10:00 O'clock". Continue around the pentagon until you have two lines to/from each corner, to the diagonally opposite corner.

Voila! A 5 point star!

Ok I see that but, 4chuck only had one line from each corner, I'm slow but sure. Thanks Dave

Bob

I still think my idea of blowing the one at the end of his name would have been easier.LOL
