Abstract: We show that the present stage of development of computer hardware and software enables to solve many elementary and non-elementary problems of classical geometry, which in the past could not be solved for the complexity of involved equations or the degree of the problem. Demonstrative examples are given, including corresponding MAPLE session record.

Keywords: Classical geometry, Computer algebra
