Answer: Use a compass to create the distance between the ends.Step-by-step explanation:Let XY be the given line segment .For the construction of a line segment congruent to a given line segment XY, we use the following steps:Step 1: Use a straightedge to draw AC so more than XY. Step 2: Place the steel tip of the compass on X and write of the tip at the Y. Step 3: Use the same setting of the compass, and the place of the steel tip at A. Draw an arc that intersects AC,then the name of this intersectiong point B. AB now is congruent to XY.or XY≅AB
