circumference of the given circle into the same number of equal parts as the number of circles required, and join each division to the centre. One of the sectors so formed is then bisected at AB and a tangent is drawn passing through B and extended (developed) to meet the sector division AC. If the angle ACB is then bisected and extended to meet AB at D it will give the centre of the first circle with radius DB. A circle is now drawn from centre A with radius AD, and the centres of the remaining circles found by stepping off distance DE from the intersection of the inner circle with the radius of each sector.
