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?

I 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).

thats 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

hmm 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.

but in general, maybe it's tougher so you may be correct

I had this question on an exam once, and my instructor told me that it's more of a personal opinion that has to be supported :)
