I understand the protractor part, but how do you set
a compass to 72 degrees. Am I missing something here.
A compass is set to a length that becomes the radius ?????

       I'm from Kansas,  where the Legislature and BOE keep trying 
        to define the term "suitable" because our constitution requires
          the state provide a "suitable" education for all students
                      Only Kansas is flat, not the entire planet.
