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?

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

    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

    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
