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.

You didn't post a question.......that's why no one can help.

I don't know how to draw this. That's my question.

Got the instruments?

- anonymous

Yes

- primeralph

Use a ruler to draw a line. Place your compass at one end and the pencil edge at the other. Mark off a point to the right. Join the point. Then bisect the angle.

- anonymous

Right now I have two arcs and they look the inside of a protractor.

- ganeshie8

which part u need help wid ? copying line or copying angle ?

- anonymous

line

- ganeshie8

|dw:1371321570464:dw|

- ganeshie8

say you wanto copy that segment AB

- ganeshie8

Tools you will need :-
1. Straight edge (to connect the end points)
2. compass ( To create the accurate distance between the two end points)

- ganeshie8

do you have both of them wid u ?

- anonymous

Yes I did that for the first segment and for the second oe

- ganeshie8

you have already done the "copy line segment" construction is it ?

- ganeshie8

wat exactly you need help wid ha

- anonymous

Yes I did the line segment and I copied it.

- ganeshie8

good, then ?

- anonymous

I don't know how to bisect the line segments

- ganeshie8

ok, its easy... lets see

- anonymous

or how to the original angle

- ganeshie8

first lets do "Bisecting a line segment" construction

- ganeshie8

|dw:1371322021816:dw|

- anonymous

okay

- ganeshie8

You're given a segment with two end points A, B

- ganeshie8

follow the steps :-

- anonymous

yes

- ganeshie8

1. place the compass on A, and open the compass to a distance more than halfway across the segment

- ganeshie8

2. swing an arc on either side of the segment

- ganeshie8

|dw:1371322146473:dw|

- anonymous

a full arc or just like you just did?

- ganeshie8

just like i did, each on top and bottom to line

- anonymous

One second, allow me to do it on my paper.

- ganeshie8

take ur time

- anonymous

I had drawn full arcs the first time and that is why I got lost. :(

- ganeshie8

ohk i understand its okay :)

- ganeshie8

Next -

- ganeshie8

Dont change ur compass width ok

- anonymous

okay

- ganeshie8

3. Keeping the compass at the same width, place the compass on B, and swing arcs on either side so that they intersect the first two arcs created.

- ganeshie8

|dw:1371322444774:dw|

- ganeshie8

4. mark the intersection points of the arcs and draw a line thru these two points

- ganeshie8

|dw:1371322517379:dw|

- ganeshie8

5. The point where this new line crosses the given segment is the midpoint and divides the segment in half

- anonymous

one second

- ganeshie8

|dw:1371322592681:dw|

- ganeshie8

ok

- anonymous

Okay I caught up

- anonymous

@ganeshie8

- ganeshie8

great ! we're done wid bisecting line segment :)

- anonymous

so that which we just did was to bisect the line, correct?

- ganeshie8

yes, we divided the given line segment into two equal parts

- ganeshie8

AC = CB

- anonymous

Remember there was a part two which was the other thing I didn't understand

- anonymous

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

- ganeshie8

dividing a given thing into two equal parts is called bisecting

- anonymous

The angle is in this one or in the next figure?

- anonymous

@ganeshie8

- ganeshie8

ok you wanto copy the given angle, is it ?

- anonymous

uh

- anonymous

first I need to draw the angle

- ganeshie8

hey pls use below for angle bisecting :
http://www.mathopenref.com/constbisectangle.html

- ganeshie8

if u get stuck you can ask me ok

- anonymous

thanks

- anonymous

I don't know what angle to use

- anonymous

idk how it will look

- ganeshie8

u can use any angle, proly use acute

- ganeshie8

|dw:1371324988480:dw|

- ganeshie8

use this angle.

- ganeshie8

the beauty of constructions is that we dont have use a particular angle. we can use any angle... and the construction bisects it without knowing wat angle it is.

- anonymous

thanks you

- ganeshie8

np :) just ping me if u get stuck wid these

- anonymous

okay

- anonymous

Can you show me how it will turn out to look?

- ganeshie8

u can see it here step by step :-
http://www.mathopenref.com/constbisectangle.html

- ganeshie8

it is very good, just click Next... the animation shows u step by step

- ganeshie8

give it a try, if u dont understand, then il walk u through ok :)

- anonymous

@ganeshie8 can you believe that I am still stuck on this? Pleasepleasepleaseeee walk me through it again! I really must turn this in.

- anonymous

This is telling me to do something else.. http://www.mathopenref.com/constcopysegment.html

- ganeshie8

wat constructin are u looking for ?

- ganeshie8

we did oly "bisecting line segment" construction here

- anonymous

These are the exact steps look..

- anonymous

Step one: Draw a line segment and copy it to the right of the original segment. Explain your steps and justify each step used.

- ganeshie8

HOLD ON.

- anonymous

Step two: Bisect the original line segment from problem one.

- anonymous

okay

- ganeshie8

which particular construction u r doing ?

- anonymous

It does not say

- anonymous

It just gives me steps and I have to draw it

- anonymous

Could sectionals be a construction?

- ganeshie8

is this another question ?

- ganeshie8

im not getting, whether you're still working on old quesition. or moved to a new q :(

- anonymous

no, the lesson is called sectionals

- ganeshie8

Post the exact question. Complete question lol

- anonymous

Okay, one second

- anonymous

There is a small paragraph above the steps and it says this: 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.

- ganeshie8

wait

- anonymous

Then the steps say:
1.Draw a line segment and copy it to the right of the original segment. Explain your steps and justify each step used.
2. Bisect the original line segment from problem one.
3. Draw an angle and copy it to the right of the original angle. Explain your steps and justify each step used.
4. Bisect the original angle from problem three.

- ganeshie8

post it as a new question. this post is very much lagging

- ganeshie8

hey we already did this, eh ?

- anonymous

okay, you want me to post the steps?

- ganeshie8

2. Bisect the original line segment from problem one.

- ganeshie8

and you said, you did the part 1 by urself. so wat exactly u looking for today

- anonymous

Can we start with the first step? I saw other lessons and I am totally lost.

- anonymous

I have line 'a' 'b' drawn already

- ganeshie8

OK. close this q. and open a new post. il assist you.;...

- anonymous

okay

- ganeshie8

this post has become very slow... its not loading propertly here
