Thales theorem

A very funny way of explaining Thales Theorem:

Dividing a segment into several equal parts
We use Thales theorem to divide a given line segment into a number of equal parts with compass and straightedge or ruler.  By using a compass and straightedge construction, we do this without measuring the line.

I think my construction is easier, but here you have another construction. In the applet we divide it into five parts but it can be any number. You will discover that both are the same!.
