Q:
# Alison wants to construct the perpendicular bisector of MN¯¯¯¯¯¯¯. What should Alison do for her first step? A.) Place the point of the compass on point M and draw an arc, using a width for the opening of the compass that is equal to 1/2MN . B.) Place the point of the compass on point M and draw an arc, using a width for the opening of the compass that is greater than 1/2MN. C.) Place the point of the compass on point M and draw an arc, using a width for the opening of the compass that is less than 1/2MN. D.) Use the straightedge to draw a line that intersects MN¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ at a point between M and N.

Accepted Solution

A:

option A is correct for construction of perpendicular bisector of MN alison has to Place the point of the compass on point M and draw an arc, using a width for the opening of the compass that is equal to 1/2MN on both sides and then join arcs by straight line
