my geometry book says: Construct a square with sides of length MN. How do I do it? Do I use my compass?

I believe so...

start with the solid line, draw the circle and the dashed line
then you have a straight line with length 2MN. Find the perpendicular bisector.

Okay NM that guy knows what hes doing!

continue the perpendicular bisector out to the edge of the first circle you drew so it has a length of MN

- anonymous

do you see what to do next?

- anonymous

i think so...actually i am not sure. could you please help me with the next step?

- anonymous

tell me what you would do next, then I'll tell you if you're right

- anonymous

do you have to construct another circle to make an intersection to make a point? I felt like that made no sense...^_^

- anonymous

in the first drawing I did or the second drawing I did?

- anonymous

um the second?

- anonymous

to find the perpendicular bisector you will have to construct two more arcs, but the circle you continue the line to is already there.

- anonymous

thats what i was thinking. could you show me how to do that?

mad u cam make a square sing compass but u will hv to be effiecient to making angles of 90 digree

- anonymous

I'm sorry @khurramshahzad, I don't understand what you just said

- anonymous

oh man i just said in short words what ever u explained above....... taking a just said to make 90 digree angle with efficiancy .. nothing more .... he said compass
