Emma is debating whether to use a straightedge and compass or a computer drawing program to complete a construction of a square inscribed in a circle. Which method do you think would take the longest to complete the construction and why?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I see. So I guess the computer method is longer. I figured that the computer was more accurate and quicker since the computer is doing all the work (crunching the numbers, etc).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats what most would think but you still have to draw out the steps and it is more confusing since you cant use a compass or straightedge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when they say "computer drawing program", which program specifically are they referring to?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm strange. Well if they mean geogebra, then it's relatively easy to construct a square in a circle. Some knowledge about the diagonal of a square is needed beforehand though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but in general, maybe it's tougher so you may be correct
