Q:
# Question 1 Multiple Choice Worth 1 points)(01.03 LC)Which of the following steps is included in the construction of a perpendicular line through a point off the line?A: Connect arc above the line with arcs below the given lineB: Connect arcs that are either above or below the original line and a point off the line with a straightedge C: Create arcs on either side of a point that is off the given lineD: Create a copied angle by using the first two lines as the original angle

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:B: Connect arcs that are either above or below the original line and a point off the line with a straightedgeStep-by-step explanation:In the construction of a perpendicular line through a point off the line, the steps are:place your compass on the point and draw an arc that crosses the line twice.without changing the span of the compass, place it on one of the two locations where the arc crossed the line and draw a small arc on the side where P is not located.without changing the span of the compass, place it on the other location on the line and draw a small arc on the side where P is not located. The two small arcs make an intersection.with a straightedge, connect the intersection of the two small arcs to point off the line (as stated in option B).
