    cuz, they're constructing circles of radius same as the circumcircle for each side of hexagon - so they must be doing an inscribed hexagon construction

    having an "arc" is same as having a "circle"

    however the shown construction has the hexagon inscribed inside circle, so it should be inscribed i feel
