The correct answer is:we will use an edge of the given angle to construct another angle with the same vertex; we call that vertex O. Mark an arc through the sides of the angle. Name of the points where the arc intersects the angle a and B; extending the arc last B. Set the compass at point B. Open to the width of AB.With the compass still set to the point B, the mark of an arc to intersect the first arc at a point C. you Now have two congruent segments, BA = BC. Since the distance OA=OB=OC, ∠AOB and ∠BOC are congruent.
