The Right Tool
- Anthony Gillman
Copy this figure using only a pencil and no other tools.
Familiarize yourself with your straightedge and compass by drawing a few circles of different sizes, a few line segments of different lengths, and extending some of those line segments in both directions.
Follow the directions carefully.
a. Draw a point and label it A. b. Draw a circle centered at point A with radius of length PQ. c. Mark a point on the circle and label it B. d. Draw another circle centered at point B that goes through point A. e. Draw a line segment between points A and B.
