Some steps to construct an angle MNT congruent to angle PQR are listed below. Step 3 is not listed. Step 1 - Draw a segment NT. Step 2 - Use a compass to draw an arc from point Q which intersects the side PQ of angle PQR at point A and the side QR at point B. Step 3 - Step 4 - Adjust the width of the compass to AB and draw an arc from point X such that it intersects the arc drawn from N in a point Y. Step 5 - Join points N and Y using a straightedge. Which statement describes step 3 correctly? Answer Without changing the compass width, draw an arc from point T which inters

Without changing the compass width, draw an arc from point T which intersects the segment NT at a point X. Without changing the compass width, draw an arc from point A which intersects the segment NT at a point X. Without changing the compass width, draw an arc from point B which intersects the segment NT at a point X. Without changing the compass width, draw an arc from point N which intersects the segment NT at a point X.

The very last option is correct. "Without changing the compass width, draw an arc from point N which intersects the segment NT at a point X."

The figure below shows some steps that Meg used to construct an angle bisector BO of an angle ABC. Two figures are shown. Figure 1 is labeled as step 1 and shows angle ABC. Figure 2 is labeled as step 2 and shows the same angle ABC with an arc that intersects AB in P and CB in Q. In the next step Meg draws two arcs, one from point P and the other from point Q. Which statement is true for this step? Answer Different widths of the compass are used when drawing the arcs from points P and Q. The same width of the compass is used when drawing the arcs from point P and point Q. The width of the compass is taken equal to BC to draw the arc from point P and the compass width is adjusted equal to BP to draw the arc from point Q. The width of the compass is taken equal to BQ to draw the arc from point P and the compass width is adjusted equal to BA to draw the arc from point Q.

The second one. "The same width of the compass is used when drawing the arcs from point P and point Q."

could you also help me on this one Mia plotted points L, M, and N to represent the vertices of a triangle as shown in the figure below. What should Mia do to make LMN an acute isosceles triangle? Answer Move N to a point above its current position on the arc. Move M to a point on the arc to the left of segment XY. Move N to the point of intersection of the arc and segment XY. Move M to a point on the arc and to the right of the segment XY.
