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?
