what is the answer to "construct a segment whose length is EF - CD and by the way a segment symbol is above the EF and CD

  • math -

    I will assume the usual sloppy use of quotation marks and interpret the question as

    construct a segment whose length is EF - CD

    Set the compass to the length of CD
    Mark that distance on EF
    The remainder of segment EF is EF-CD
