it is not possible to construct angles which are not divisible by 7.5 degree using a compass. but you are free to use a protractor for that purpose:)

Draw a point, and a long straight line through it. Put the centre of the compass over the point, with north on the compass (or zero degrees) on the line. Then draw a second line out from the point at 80 degrees on the compass. You 'll then have a 80 degree angle between the lines. 

It 's usually a trick that teachers decide to do on their pupils. A compass is what you use to find north and a pair of compasses is used to draw circles.
