Joaquin is constructing the perpendicular bisector of AB. He opens hiscompass so that the distance from the two points of the compass is widerthan half the length of AB. He then places the point of the compass on pointA and draws an arc across AB. What is his next step?to

Accepted Solution

Answer:AStep-by-step explanation:The steps for constructing the perpendicular bisector is:Step 1:Open the compass more than half of the length of the segment AB and put it on point A and draw an arc across ABStep 2:Place the compass with the same width on point B and draw an arc across AB.Step 3:Place the ruler on the points above and below AB and draw a line.Step 4:The line is the perpendicualr bisector of the line segment AB ..Hence, option A is the correct answer ..
