# Mohr–Mascheroni theorem

In mathematics, the Mohr–Mascheroni theorem states that any geometric construction that can be performed by a compass and straightedge can be performed by a compass alone. The result was originally published by Georg Mohr in 1672,[1] but his proof languished in obscurity until 1928.[2][3] The theorem was independently discovered by Lorenzo Mascheroni in 1797.[4]
