## Sunshine447 2 years ago Sam wants to inscribe a square in a circle using only a compass and straightedge. He will first construct a circle and locate its center. He will then perform the following steps. Step 1: Use the straightedge to draw a diameter of the circle. Step 2: Copy the length of the diameter and construct another diameter. Step 3: Join the points of intersection of the endpoints of the diameters and the circle. What is the error in Sam’s steps?

Choices: He constructed only two diameters and not four. He did not ensure that the diameters are at right angles to each other. He did not ensure that the diameter passes through the center of the circle. He constructed two diameters of the same length.

I know it's not C because the diameter HAS to go through the center of the circle

4. Sunshine447

And it's not D because diameters HAVE to be the SAME length

I'm leaning towards B but I'm not really sure.......

6. Sunshine447

i think both are true A and B

7. Sunshine447

nope

8. Sunshine447

Imthinking the right angles are more important
