Construct Congruent Segments

AJ Storck

Follow these steps for congruent segment constructions:

1) Using the SEGMENT TOOL, make a segment CD of any length 2) Using the COMPASS TOOL, create a circle with radius AB and center point C 3) Using the POINT TOOL, mark the intersection of circle C and segment CD REMEMBER: Congruent circles have the same radius. The compass tool measures and preserves the radius. Therefore, the compass tool can be used to draw congruent segments.
