    When constructing parallel lines with a compass and straightedge, how should you start the construction?

    1.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.

    @oleg3321 Have you seen what the correct answer is?

    so it "Create a line that intersects the given line with your straightedge." @mathstudent55

    That is the answer. If you read the other choices carefully, you should notice that they make no sense.

    1. 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.
