Kathy uses the following steps to construct a perpendicular line through a point C on a line segment: Step 1: From point C, draw two arcs intersecting the line segment in points A and B. Step 2: Using slightly more compass width, draw two arcs from point A, one above and the other below the line segment. Step 3: Using the same width of the compass, draw two arcs from point B, above and below the line segment. Step 4: Label the point of intersection of the arcs above the line segment as F and below the line as E. Step 5: Using a compass, join E and F.

art A: Which is the first incorrect step? Part B: Using complete sentences, explain your answer for Part A. Part C: Explain why a compass works for the construction done by Kathy.

no compass, no way to completely understand the steps. Ok, let me try

Then same with point b? two arcs?

with the same width of the compass ( a little bit wider compare to it is from the first step) , point at B draw 2 arcs as you do at point A |dw:1402455166894:dw| they will cut the arcs from A at E ( above ) and F ( below)
