    the original segment is whatever I drew for the line segment, I just did a random line

    ok it is telling me to divide your line segment into two parts...so im guessing it would be a and b

    the question is asking you to use a compass to bisect the line and the angle...

    use this link to see how to bisect a line and bisect an angle http://www.mathopenref.com/tocs/constructionstoc.html

    @breanna, its 2 separate tasks 1. Draw the line, copy the line, bisect the line 2. Draw an angle, copy the angle, bisect the angle

    well the way it reads, you need to explain how you copied it as well.. maybe plot a point a' measure the original ab, twice to check go to a' mark the endpoint b' join a' and b' to bisect you need a compass open the compass to more then half... point at a' draw an arc above and below... etc look at the link I posted.... it shows what to do
