  • Question 1
    60 seconds
    Q. When copying line segment AB using a straight edge and a compass, the compass should be used to:
    answer choices
    Draw an arc above point A
    Measure the length of segment AB
    Draw an arc between point A and point B
    Measure half the length of line segment AB
  • Question 2
    60 seconds
    Q. Suppose we wish to construct a perpendicular bisector of line segment EF. We can correctly begin by placing the compass point on E and marking off the distance to which point?
    answer choices
    A
    B
    C
    D
  • Question 3
    60 seconds
    Q. To inscribe a hexagon inside a circle, which length should you set your compass to?
    answer choices
    The radius
    The diameter
    Half of the radius
    It depends on the size of the circle
  • Question 4
    60 seconds
    Q. Suppose we wish to construct angle EFG congruent to angle DBC using a compass and straightedge. Which step would be correct to do first?
    answer choices
    Place the compass point at B
    Place the compass point at C
    Place the straightedge along A and C
    Place the straightedge along C and D
  • Question 5
    60 seconds
    Q. When bisecting an angle, the straightedge should be used to:
    answer choices
    Mark the point M
    Measure the angle AOB
    Copy the angle with an arc
    Connect point M and vertex O
  • Question 6
    60 seconds
    Q. To inscribe a square inside a circle, first you must draw a diameter anywhere across the circle. What should your next step be?
    answer choices
    Construct a perpendicular bisector
    Draw a second diameter to the circle
    Construct a line tangent to the circle
    Set your compass the length of the radius.
