# Another Geometric Construction

Edited by Thomas Hull

### Finding 1/3 of a side of a square

This is a very simple and elegant construction, and the generalizations are very interesting.
There is a misprint in the solutions for w and z that would be worth correcting: in the denominator, the sign in front of the square root of 2x should be +, not - .

### Equation correction

Good catch! Thanks, I've corrected it. -- Robert
