The final result of the section is in §365 where Gauss shows that any regular n-gon with n a prime number of the form can be constructed with straightedge and compass. Only if n has the form ( ** ) can the polynomial X be reduced to a sequence of quadratic equations, which in turn is what permits geometric solution. Dedekind's booklet  gives a detailed and readable account of the contents of the seventh section. Similar to the other sections of Disqu. , the seventh section contains several additional arithmetical results which follow from the general theory.
From external evidence-a handwritten remark by Gauss in reference to the paragraph of Disqu. Arithm. in which the theorem was proved-they infer that Gauss completed that very day, April 8, 1796, his first proof of the law of quadratic reciprocity. Schlesinger, in his essay, goes a step further and quotes the entry as evidence for the fact that Gauss had actually proved the law on that day. The diary leaves us similarly confused with regard to Gauss's work about cubic and biqua1 * One can basically rely on the collected works and on Bachmann's comments in his essay in Vol.
Why this was so is not difficult to see. Cooperation and scientific exchange are much more important in astronomy than in mathematics, and Gauss had to participate in these discussions for his own benefit. His theoretical efforts in astronomy naturally led him to the empirical, observational side of the subject, an occupation which clearly had much appeal for him. As in mathematics, he could work by himself, and he may have found the relaxing concreteness of the observations a welcome counterweight to his abstract theoretical work.
