## How do you make a square?

Creating Squares strategy Start in the middle, then click on diagonal dots either side of the middle to make a diagonal line of 3. Then click on a dot to the right, left, up, down or diagonal from the middle. Create a T shape with your dots then you can usually win on a 5 x 5 grid.

**How do you construct a square segment?**

- STEPS:
- Using your straightedge, draw a reference line, if one is not provided.
- Copy the side of the square onto the reference line, starting at a point labeled A’.
- Construct a perpendicular at point B’ to the line through .
- Place your compass point at B’, and copy the side of the square onto the perpendicular.

### How do you construct a square and a rectangle?

Squaring A Rectangle

- Start with rectangle ABCD.
- Extend side AB.
- Draw an arc centered at B with radius BC.
- Construct the midpoint M of segment AE.
- Construct a circle centered at M with radius OA.
- Extend side CB.
- Let F be the point where the circle and ray CB intersect.
- Then BF is the side of the desired square.

**What is the first step in constructing an inscribed square?**

1 Mark a point A on the circle. This will become one of the vertices of the square. 2 Draw a diameter line from the point A, through the center and on to cross the circle again, creating point C. 3 Set the compass on A and set the width to a little more than the distance to O.

## How is a rectangle constructed?

To construct a rectangle, we need to create a quadrilateral that only has right angles. All rectangles have opposites sides that are parallel to each other and equal in length. If we are given two line segments, AB and CD, we can construct a rectangle with both AB and CD sides of length.

**How do you create a shape in GeoGebra?**

How to create polygons in GeoGebra

- Locate the Polygon button.
- Select the Polygon button.
- On graph select appropriate coordinates (You can do this by either inputting the coordinates on the left column or by simply clicking coordinates on the grid)
- Connect your coordinates.
- You now have a polygon!

### When constructing a square inscribed in a circle the points that are connected to create the square are called?

The resulting four points on the circle are the vertices of the inscribed square.

**When constructing an inscribed square how many lines?**

2, 3, 5, 7. Summary: When constructing an inscribed square, diameter and a perpendicular bisector of diameter are two lines drawn in the circle.
