CONSTRUCT A HEXAGON - FOURTH

METHOD.

(5) *Construct a Hexagon - Fifth Method*, (figure 31 on the following page).

We

have to construct a hexagon C across the flats. To construct this hexagon, perform

the following steps:

Step 1.

Construct a circle of diameter C (view A).

Step 2.

Construct two vertical lines tangential to the circle (view A).

Step 3. Using a 30, triangle, construct lines tangential to the circle, and 30, to

the horizontal as shown in view B.
