@DrPepperx3 I don't understand what the question is. I see the four options but they are not questions. So, please post what it is that we are to figure out here, okay?

I attached a picture to go along with it :)

The picture looks like part of a construction of something. But, there is no question with the picture.

Do you think the construction is this: a. a perpendicular to a given line from a point on the line Yes/No

I also think "no" because there is no given point where the pink ray is intersected by the dashed segment.

that's what I was thinking!

im taking a guess but I think its D

I don't see any markings to indicate that this is correct: b. a line segment congruent to a given line segment And, three of the four answer options have "perpendicular" in them so I think it has to be c) or d) because we ruled out a).

hmm so C or D

im going to go with my first guess and say D what do you think?

There is no segment in the diagram that has been bisected. That is a ray there in pink and a ray has infinite length.

So, I don't agree with D.

The construction of a perpendicular bisector of a segment looks like this: (see below) dw:1386060914291:dw

ohhh I was thinking it was a segment that has been bisected

So, that leaves which option to be correct?

Directrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Correct. The pink angle is part of the diagram just to throw you off. c. the perpendicular to a given line from a point not on the line Here's how the construction goes: dw:1386061121384:dw
