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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2We cannot measure anything with straight edge in constructions, so B isn't right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2For the same reason, C is also incorrect

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2D is wrong because, straight edge is not used for drawing arcs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1last 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2protractor and ruler are NOT allowed in constructions, so A is wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What 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
