Update:
basak, I'm so busy watching the fireworks that I'll pretend I did not see your answer which you did in 10 minutes.

Update 2:
It's not 20 degrees, and it's not that well known "hardest easy geometry problem"

Update 3:
Yeah, that was amazing, Vikram P

Update 4:
It's one of the little oddities of geometry that isoceles triangles of apex angles = (360) / (4n+6) can be subdivided into cascading isoceles triangles all of the same side lengths, equal to the base of the original. This proof is for the particular case n = 3, or apex angle = 20.
