  1. 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.

  2. use the edge to construct an arbitrary angle, with vertex at O.

    Mark an arc through the sides of the angle. Let the arc intersect the rays at A and B. Continue the arc on past B for a distance.

    Set the compass at B, and to the width of AB.

    Still with the compass at B, mark an arc to intersect the first arc at C.

    Now you have AB = BC.

    Since the radius OA=OB=OC, angles AOB and BOC are congruent.
