Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I guess the computer method is longer. I figured that the computer was more accurate and quicker since the computer is doing all the work (crunching the numbers, etc).Plus if you make a mistake, there's always the undo button.my instructor told me that it's more of a personal opinion that has to be supported Don't know if this will help @HelloKitty17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It will take the computer longer because there is so much work that you have to do vs the compass and the straight edge. The straight edge would take a shorter time if you knew what you were doing .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0With the computer you would have to look up things to help you with the problem and the straight edge would help you get the problem done faster.
