I NEED HELP IN GEOMETRYY!!! THIS IS THE PROBLEM It's time to put it all together! Now that you know how to construct, it's your turn to create your own construction. Using your compass and straightedge, complete the steps below. Draw a line segment and copy it to the right of the original segment. Explain your steps and justify each step used. Bisect the original line segment from problem one. Draw an angle and copy it to the right of the original angle. Explain your steps and justify each step used. Bisect the original angle from problem three. CAN ANYONE HELP ME??????
This is fairly self explanatory, 'draw' a line segment means to mark a line on piece of paper, any length you desire, roughly in the left upper quadrant (1/4 of the page), and 'copy' it to the right of the segment, writing down the steps you use. For example: Original line segment, 3 inch straight line. For the 'copy', you would 'measure' the line drawn, and duplicate it to the right, measuring it to make sure it is the exact length of the first line. To bisect the original line segment measure the line with a ruler or other device, and calculate 1/2 distance from one end, mark it, measure from left end to mark, make sure right section is equal in length. You can do this without 'measuring', without a ruler, simply use a piece of paper and mark the 'total length first on it, then fold it in half to find the mid-point Use the same process for the 'angles'.
1.Draw a line segment and copy it to the right of the original segment that means draw a line. then use a compass to measure its length, and make a copy of it to the right
2.to bisect the line see http://www.mathopenref.com/constbisectline.html
http://www.mathopenref.com/constcopyangle.html first create an angle. then see the site to make an exact copy
and to bisect an angle http://www.mathopenref.com/constbisectangle.html
thank you. Ill work that out
