## Which of the following steps is included in the construction of a perpendicular line through a point on a line?

**Which of the following steps is included in the construction of a perpendicular line through a point on a line**? Connect arcs that are above and below the given **line** with a straightedge. When **constructing** a **perpendicular line through a point** off a **line**, how can you verify that the **lines** constructed are **perpendicular**?

## How do you construct a perpendicular from a point on a line?

**To drop a perpendicular from a point to a line**

- open the compass a distance larger than the
**perpendicular**distance from the**point**to the**line**, and scribe an arc intersecting the**line**at two**points**. - Call the two
**points**B and C. - Call the
**point**where the two arcs meet D. - AD is the
**line**through A**perpendicular**to BC. - Proof.

## Which step is included in the construction of parallel lines 5 points?

Intersecting arcs are created and connected. **Which step is included in the construction of parallel lines**? Copy an angle by creating arcs with a compass.

## What is the first step in the construction of a perpendicular line from point P to line M?

To draw a **perpendicular** from the **point P** to the **line m**, the **first step** should be mark and arc. Take a compass and place it on the **point P** and then mark a small arc right below the **line m**.

## How do you construct parallel lines?

**How to Construct Two Parallel Lines**

- The first thing you do is
**draw**a straight**line**. It can be any length. - Step 2: Steps Two & Three. Place the stylus of the compass on the point, and swing the compass down to make two marks on the
**line**. - Step 3: Step Four & Five.
- Connect these 3 points, and now you have 2
**parallel lines**!

## When constructing inscribed polygons and perpendicular lines How are the steps similar 2 points?

**When constructing inscribed polygons and perpendicular lines how are the steps similar**? Intersecting arcs are created and connected. What is the first **step when constructing** parallel **lines**? You just studied 10 terms!

## How do you draw a perpendicular line using a protractor?

**Construction of Perpendicular Lines by Using a Protractor**

- Let l be the given
**line**and A the given point on it. - Place the
**protractor**on the**line**l such that its base**line**coincides with l, and its centre falls on A. - Mark a point B against the 90° mark on the
**protractor**. - Remove the
**protractor**and**draw**a**line**m passing through A and B. Then**line**m ┴**line**l at A.

## How do you construct a perpendicular right triangle?

**How to draw** a **perpendicular** to the hypotenuse in a **right triangle**

- Step I: With vertex A and Radius AB
**draw**an arc cutting BC at P. - Step II: With centre B and radius more than BP
**draw**an arc. - Step III: with centre P and the same radius as in previous step,
**draw**another arc intersecting the arc drawn in previous step at Q. - Step IV: Join AQ and let it intersect BC at D.

## What is the best next step in the construction of an equilateral triangle?

This is the **equilateral triangle** that we are interested in. The **Next** in the **construction of an equilateral triangle** is: Option B:→ Use a Compass to draw a circle centered at B with a radius that is equal to AB.

## What is the next step in the following construction of a square?

Connect points A to B to C to D to form the **square**. Now to **construct** a perpendicular bisector of AB, the **next step** is to place the compass at A and open the compass to greater than the center P of the circle. We do the same at point B.

## When constructing parallel lines How can you be sure the lines you constructed are parallel?

**When constructing parallel lines, how can you** verify the **lines constructed are parallel**? Check the intersecting **lines** with the corner of a piece of paper to ensure the **lines** create 90° angles. Check the distance along the **lines** at several places with a compass to ensure they are the same length.

## What is the first step in the construction of a line perpendicular to AB?

**Step**-by-**step** explanation:

In the **construction of a line perpendicular to AB**←→ and passing through an external point M the **first step** must be”Place the compass needle on M and, keeping the compass width the same, draw two arcs that intersect **AB**←→”.
