there is ur transversal...

4. lolly

5. jasmynarteaga1

ok. u start with line AB and point P. do u have the line and the point?

6. lolly

7. jasmynarteaga1

yes. alright. so next ur going to take ur compass and open it to about half way through line AP

8. lolly

do u have to have a compass?

9. jasmynarteaga1

yes u do

10. lolly

k... what next? or is that all?

11. jasmynarteaga1

|dw:1351553857809:dw|no. first of all, my mistake, the line that goes through the random dot doesnt need to go through point A. Second of all, the next thing you need to do is keep the compass at about half way through the new line and draw an arc so itll look something like this.

12. jasmynarteaga1

u there?

13. lolly

yah im here..trying to process all this tho...

14. jasmynarteaga1

okay. just tell me when ur done so i can go to the next step :)

15. lolly

go to the next step..:P

16. jasmynarteaga1

otay so next ur gonna do the same, but with point P. Keep the compass at teh same measurement and make and arc

17. lolly

k...

18. jasmynarteaga1

ok after that ur going to measure the length from halfway mark to the line.

then what?

21. jasmynarteaga1

oh wait hold on.

24. lolly

wow..that looks confusing..

25. jasmynarteaga1

that little arc on the big arc just shows where the line passes through thebig arc.

26. lolly

ok...is there more? or no?
