3: Locate C on ray MY such that C lies on the circle having center B and radius AB.

4: Locate E on ray MX such that E lies on the circle having center A and radius AB.

5: Locate D, the intersection of the circle having center C and radius AB and the circle having center E and radius AB.

6: Pentagon ABCDE is the Cairo tile. Recopy it and create the Cairo tessellation!
