Egyptian Rope

The ancient Egyptians were said to make right-angled triangles using a rope which was knotted to make 12 equal sections.


If you have a rope knotted like this, what other triangles can you make? (You must have a knot at each corner.)What regular shapes can you make - that is, shapes with equal sides and equal angles?
