No, it is not. In 1837, the French mathematician, Pierre Laurent Wantzel, proved that it was impossible to do so using only compass and straightedge.

pi has yet to be solved so i guess that pi is a impossible math problem.That above meaning the digits of pi. Pi is an irrational number so its digits will go forever. Not sure if that's considered a math problem, though.How about trisecting an angle using geometric constructions. That one hasn't been solved yet to my knowledge.Squaring the circle - constructing a square and a circle which have the same area, would be another one that I believe is unsolvable.

Nothings impossible.

It sounds marvellous. It suggests that it is better than the one which is not advanced. Here is Michael Flanders talking in 1957 about airports: "And then someone comes and tells you that you are on the "advanced flight", which sounds marvellous! Until you find out that it means you have to wait another half an hour!"
