## grimurmurs 3 years ago Use a straightedge and a compass to construct a triangle with 2 sides having the same length. Describe the process you used. Now use a protractor to measure each angle of the triangle. What are the measures of each angle?

1. matzen

the same side triangle? or at least 2 side same triangle

2. grimurmurs

2 sides have to have the same length

We really can't do that on a computer bro I'd have to draw in real life... :L

4. grimurmurs

I know I don't have a compass, straightedge, or a protractor :(

try a program called Geogebra it is specialized in that sort of thing

6. grimurmurs

Cool okay thanks

No problem

8. matzen

the angle must be 90 45 45

9. grimurmurs

Okay

yea the angles have to sum up to 180 so 90, 45 and 45 degrees work perfectly... In other words make a right triangle and there you go

11. grimurmurs

my angle has to look like this <

12. grimurmurs

I figured it out, thanks guys

1. Draw a straight line 2. copy the line so the new line is started at one point of the original line (the thing where you extend your protractor so it is the length of the line) --> this can be at any angle 3. draw a line that connects the first two lines 4. Measure the angles and write that down

in #1, the straight line can be any length
