How to Divide a Circle into 5 Equal Parts?

TopCircle is a flat figure and it consists of Set of points which are equidistant from center. It is a simple closed curve which has a radius and Diameter. Diameter can be defined as longest Chord which passes through Centre of Circle, it is denoted by 'd'. Radius of circle can be defined as half of diameter means it extends from Center of Circle to its circumference and denoted by 'r'. Area of circle is defined as total space inside the circle, area of circle is Πr2. Now, we will see how to divide a circle into 5 equal parts.

A circle is drawn on a sheet of paper using a Compass having radius of any length. As we know that angle made by circle is 3600, divide the circle into five equal parts by dividing 360 by 5, we get 72. Thus each sector of circle has 72 degrees, by taking the protractor at the center of circle mark a Point 'A' at 72 degrees. Draw a straight line joining the center and point A.
Similarly mark 72 degrees from the line drawn. Now we get 3 points, mark them as B, C, and D points. Now join these points to center of circle using scale. Thus circle is divided into five equal parts. So, whenever we want to divide a circle into ‘n’ equal parts then divide 360 degrees by 'n' to get degree of each sector. This is the procedure for dividing the circle into equal parts.
