1) Explain how you can use a straightedge and a compass to construct an angle that is both congruent and adjacent to a given angle.
2) When constructing a perpendicular bisector, why must the compass opening be greater than the 1/2 the length of the segment?
3) When constructing an angle bisector, why must the arcs intersect?
4) __
