I have used your suggestion above for drawing a 5 pointed star using the protractor to measure the angle of 72 degrees and then using a pair of compasses marking off the next four points.I have also printed off your solution and find that both mine and yours show that not all the segments are at 72 degrees?In other words it does not work, I know it should as 72 X 5 = 360.I was hoping that there was a solution using just a pair of compasses.
