# When constructing an equilateral triangle by hand, what step come after constructing a circle?

###### Question:

## Answers

Without changing the distance of the compass put the pin of the

compass on the other endpoint of the segment and draw another

circle intersects the first circle in a point over the segment

Step-by-step explanation:

* Lets revise how to construct an equilateral triangle

- Use a straightedge to draw a line segment which represents a side

of the triangle

- Span the segment with your compass

- Put the pin of the compass on one of the endpoints of the segment

and draw a circle

- Without changing the distance of the compass put the pin of the

compass on the other endpoint of the segment and draw another

circle intersects the first circle in a point over the segment

- Join this point with the endpoints of the segment , now you have

an equilateral triangle

* From the steps above the steps comes after constructing a circle is

Without changing the distance of the compass put the pin of the

compass on the other endpoint of the segment and draw another

circle intersects the first circle in a point over the segment
