Explain the distance formula. Then use it to calculate the distance between A(1,1) and B(7,-7). Any help please.

I think the answer is that you use the straightedge to draw two parallel lines and then you draw a line that goes through them that is perpendicular. You then use the compass to measure the angles, they should be congruent and adjacent. Any help would be appreciated.

Explain how you can use a straightedge and a compass to construct an angle that is both congruent and adjacent to a given angle.
