## rajfk35 3 years ago Which of these is a correct step in constructing congruent line segments? use a straightedge to draw two equal arcs from the end points use a compass to join the end points of the line segment use a straightedge to measure the length of the line segment use a compass to create the distance between the end points

@hoblos

2. rajfk35

i think its c

3. hoblos

yeah it's c ... you measure the length of the segment and draw the other with the same length

4. rajfk35

yay thanks

Straightedges do NOT have markings on them like rulers do. So how can you measure anything with a straightedge?

6. hoblos

ah really! i though they mean a ruler by 'Straightedges' !! sorry my english is not that good ! :\$

7. jim_thompson5910

you would actually use a compass to measure any and all distances

8. ganeshie8

even if it has markings, you are "not supposed to directly measure" in euclid's constructions

9. rajfk35

so is not c?

10. ganeshie8

you can strike off all options that have measure in them

11. hoblos

no it's not.. sorry! as @jim_thompson5910 said.. it's d

okay
