- 1. Multiple ChoiceWhen copying line segment AB using a straight edge and a compass, the compass should be used to:Draw an arc above point AMeasure the length of segment ABDraw an arc between point A and point BMeasure half the length of line segment AB
- 2. Multiple ChoiceSuppose 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?ABCD
- 3. Multiple ChoiceTo inscribe a hexagon inside a circle, which length should you set your compass to?The radiusThe diameterHalf of the radiusIt depends on the size of the circle
- 4. Multiple ChoiceSuppose we wish to construct angle EFG congruent to angle DBC using a compass and straightedge. Which step would be correct to do first?Place the compass point at BPlace the compass point at CPlace the straightedge along A and CPlace the straightedge along C and D
- 5. Multiple ChoiceWhen bisecting an angle, the straightedge should be used to:Mark the point MMeasure the angle AOBCopy the angle with an arcConnect point M and vertex O
- 6. Multiple ChoiceTo inscribe a square inside a circle, first you must draw a diameter anywhere across the circle. What should your next step be?Construct a perpendicular bisectorDraw a second diameter to the circleConstruct a line tangent to the circleSet your compass the length of the radius.
- 7. Multiple ChoiceWhich diagram shows a correct mathematical construction using only a compass and a straightedge to bisect an angle?ABCD
- 8. Multiple ChoiceWhat geometric construction is shown in the diagram below?an angle bisectora line parallel to a given linean angle congruent to a given anglea perpendicular bisector of a segment
- 9. Multiple ChoiceGiven: angle A

What is the first step in constructing the angle bisector of angle A?Draw ray ADDraw a line segment connecting points B and C.From points B and C, draw equal arcs that intersect at D.From point A, draw an arc that intersects the sides of theangle at points B and C. - 10. Multiple ChoiceBased on the construction, which statement must be true?ABCD
- 11. Multiple ChoiceA straightedge and compass were used to create the construction. Arc EF was drawn from point B, and arcs with equal radii were drawn from E and F.ABCD
- 12. Multiple ChoiceLine segment AB is shown in the diagram. Which two sets of construction marks, labeled I, II , III, and IV,are part of the construction of the perpendicular bisector of line segment AB?I and III and IIIII and IIIII and IV
- 13. Multiple ChoiceMarsha is using a straightedge and compass to do the construction shown. Which best describes the construction Marsha is doing?a line through P parallel to line la line through P intersecting line la line through P congruent to line la line through P perpendicular to line l
- 14. Multiple ChoiceABCD
