Given (Line segment) AB, explain how to construct a square with sides of length AB.

Can you help @Photon336

you could use the protractor to measure out the line segment

Protractors may not be used in classic Greek constructions - just a straighedge.

right a straight edge but would that be right if you did that then you would explain the steps=)

You cannot use any measuring device. Do you want me to show you a way to do the construction?

yes please, I'm confused =(

Start with a given segment AB. We do not know how many inches long it is.

Yes okay

how do you draw a working line?

ohh okay.

but isn't that a measuring tool? Because your telling how big the line is now?

|dw:1444187235335:dw|

ohh okay go on..

We will now make a right angle at A on the working line. Squares have right interior angles.

yep squares have 4 right angles lol!

do you accomplish this right angle with a protractor?

yeah I figured that out once u showed u next reply lol

The two arcs that were just drawn above point A - do the same for point B.
|dw:1444187840266:dw|

Do the same for B.
|dw:1444187942531:dw|

We have created right angles with vertices A and B.
Now, get the measure of AB back on the compass.

okay

ohh then you would do the same for b and then you would use u straigh edge right?

Yes.
Last step coming up.

There is the constructed square with side AB. I named it square ABCD.

thank you so much!! i understand now lol

You are welcome.
