1. Begin with a segment between 2 points A and B. 2. Construct a semi-circle from the segment endpoints. 3. Plot a point on the semi-circle and label. 4. Switch to move and hide the semi-circle. 5. Construct a triangle by segmenting all points, A, C, and B. 6. Measure the right angle. 7. Measure the length of each triangle side using the distance tool. 8. Turn the right triangle sides into squares using the polygon tool. 9. Measure the area of each square with the area tool. 10. Adding the areas of the 2 small squares will give the area of the largest square.
