It is well-known that there is no exact procedure for trisection of arbitrary angles if one uses only the available Euclidean instruments (the straightedge and the compass) and stays within the constraints specified in Euclidean constructions. However, approximate procedures do exist, and the challenge can be to find simple procedures for which the error is very small. In this article, we present one such procedure.
