3. |
Draw three rays of circle 1, to the angular points of triangle 2, and extend these lines. | ||||

4. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower angular point of triangle 2, passing through its upper righthand angular point. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 4 two times, to the other angular points of triangle 2. | ||||

6. |
Copy circle 1 to the upper intersection of circles 5. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 6 at the upper side. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower angular point of triangle 2, passing through the intersection of circle 7 and the upper righthand ray 3. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 8 two times, to the other angular points of triangle 2.In the next sixteen steps, steps 6, 7, 8, and 9, are repeated - mutatis mutandis - four times.
