Lill's Angle Trisection
This Demonstration shows Lill's angle trisection. The angle to be trisected is marked with a green arc.[more]
Consider the trigonometric identity for in the form
Substitute and to get
This equation has the solutions
By Lill's construction,
so given (the green arc), we must find such that (i.e. the length of the thick red segment is 0, thus the points and coincide). Then we find . From , we can construct .
In the special case , we get .[less]
Only in the third snapshot is the condition fulfilled.
