Copying an Angle

Follow the steps below to copy angle

*BAC*:- In the space below angle
*BAC*, draw ray*RY*. - Using
*B*as center, use the circle tool to draw an circle of any radius that intersects both ray*BA*and ray*BC*. Construct points*D*and*E*where the circle intersects those rays. - Use the segment tool to construct any radius of the circle you just constructed in Step 2.
- Use the Compass tool and select the segment you constructed in Step 3 and then point
*R*to construct a circle centered at*R*with the same radius as the circle you constructed in Step 2. Construct point*S*where this circle intersects ray*RY*. - Construct segment
*DE*. - Use the compass tool and select segment
*DE*and then point*S*to construct a circle that intersects the circle centered at*R*that you constructed in Step 4 at point*Q*. - Draw ray
*RQ*.

*QRS*should remain congruent to angle*ABC*.
