With the Create Star and Polygons tool, Inkscape allows the user to create star, but is difficult to make regular stars, that is, ones like the five-pointed stars where the star can be drawn using the same number of lines as points. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stellation for more info.
By drawing from point to point on the vertices of a regular polygon, such a star can be created accurately and quickly.
The number of regular star polygons contained within a polygon is determined by ((n(n-3))/2)n=s (round down to nearest whole number), n being the number of sides of the polygon, (n(n-3))/2 being the number of diagonals in the polygon, and s rounded down being the number of regular star polygons in the figure.
