HELP ME PLEASE!! Jaira is completing a construction of a regular hexagon inscribed in a circle as shown below. What should be the next step in her construction? Construct a line perpendicular to the line AB to create four congruent quadrants. Draw another circle from point B with the same radius as her original circle. Construct another point E by placing her compass at point D. Draw arcs above and below line AB to show where the angles angles meet.

    I assume from the drawing that the first arc Jaira drew from point B to point C had length AB, the radius of the circle. She can continue this process for a total of 6 times to get the vertices of the regular hexagon. So, what do you think will be the next step? Post what you think and we will compare answers, okay?
