# Draw a polygon that satisfies this criterion

Draw a picture of a simple polygon and a set of guards, such that the guards can see every point on every edge of the polygon, but the guards cannot see every point in the interior of the polygon.

I encountered this while randomly searching for polygon triangulation problems. I feel that no such polygon + guard combination exists. but I do not know how to go about proving or disproving that. Some help would be appreciated.

A slight explanation of how to form such a polygon would be enough. I cannot find a way to do so. This isn't homework. – vh4x0r Apr 24 '12 at 14:53
Ok, I have added some context now. – vh4x0r Apr 24 '12 at 14:55
Have you seen this book? – J. M. Apr 24 '12 at 15:02
I have an example of this, but I do not know how to include images in an answer. If anybody tells me how, I will draw it (can I do this directly in LaTeX?). – Daan Michiels Apr 24 '12 at 15:20
Excellent, thank you! I have found the solution. Should I update the answer myself ? – vh4x0r Apr 24 '12 at 15:20
