When constructing perpendicular lines with a compass and straightedge, how should you start the construction? A.Open the compass and mark two points of intersection between arcs from the given line. B. Use a straightedge to find the length of the given line and then make an arc above it. C. Open the compass to the width of the original line to measure it. D. Use a straightedge to create two arcs above and below the original line.

    We cannot measure anything with straight edge in constructions, so B isn't right

    For the same reason, C is also incorrect

    D is wrong because, straight edge is not used for drawing arcs

    last question! When constructing inscribed polygons and parallel lines, how are the steps similar? A protractor and ruler are used to take accurate measurements. A compass is used to draw arcs. Four right angles are created. There are no similarities.

    protractor and ruler are NOT allowed in constructions, so A is wrong

    B could be correct, but look at other options also

    What are the polygons being inscribed into? A circle? Are the polygons regular? I would say the answer is c because a compass is used in almost all constructions

    I'd go with A compass is used to draw arcs.
