Bisecting an Angle

Follow the steps below to bisect angle

*ABC*:- Using
*B*as center, use the circle tool to draw an arc of any radius. - Construct a point where that circle intersects ray
*BA*and label the point as*X*. Construct another point where the circle intersects ray BC and label that point as*Y*. - Using
*X*as center and a radius that is a little more than halfway from*X*to*Y*, draw a circle. - Use the segment tool to draw a radius of the circle you just constructed in Step 3.
- Use the Compass tool and select the segment you just constructed in Step 4 and point
*Y*to construct a circle centered at*Y*with the same radius as the circle you constructed in Step 4. - Construct point
*Z*where the circles constructed in Steps 3 and 5 intersect. - Draw ray
*BZ*.

*BZ*bisects angle*ABC*.
