Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01.Measure the length of the original line and make an arc. 2.Create a line that intersects the given line with your straightedge. 3.Open the compass to the width of the line and draw two arcs. 4.Use a straightedge to create two arcs above and below the line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it "Create a line that intersects the given line with your straightedge." @mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is the answer. If you read the other choices carefully, you should notice that they make no sense.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. You can't measure the length of a line because a line has infinite length. 3. Open the compass to the width of the line is meaningless because a line has no width, only length. 4. A straightedge is not used to make arcs, only straight lines. The only answer that makes sense is 2. Create a line that intersects the given line with your straightedge.
