Repeat all necessary steps to copy and rotate pattern 26 five times, with respect to the other angular points of hexagon 2, as shown. | ||||

28. |
Remove all redundant parts from circles 6, 9, 12, 13, and 16, and from rays 24 nrs. 46, 51, 88, 95, and 100, such that... | ||||

29. |
...this pattern remains. | ||||
