re: What is geometric construction? Comment 4 of 4 |
(In reply to What is geometric construction? by Dej Mar)

To answer the question in the subject line, a geometric construction traditionally is limited to use of straightedge and compass.  It's not numerical or algebraic (i.e., not Cartesian, but rather, Euclidean).
