I was just thinking about numbers, and composites in particular.

If we consider some composite (M*K), that means that it can be divided into
'K' equal lengths of M units.

This means (additionally) that every composite M*K can be turned into a
regular K-gon with sides of length M. (For degenerate 2-sided K-gons, we
will factor out the 2's until it is not an even number or 2 is remaining).

I am wondering if there is any trigonometric property or identity for
regular N-gons that might be helpful in factoring.

Thoughts?

I think it would be good to have a crackpot factoring scheme.
There are quite a few crackpots I would like to factor.
