Construct |

On a given finite straight line to construct an equilateral triangle.

• Start with the line segment AB.

• Create a circle around point A with a radius of AB.

• Construct another circle around point B with a radius of BA.

• Create a third point, C, where the two circles intersect.

• Join point C to points A and B.

The equilateral triangle ABC has now been constructed on the given line AB.

• Start with the line segment AB.

• Create a circle around point A with a radius of AB.

• Construct another circle around point B with a radius of BA.

• Create a third point, C, where the two circles intersect.

• Join point C to points A and B.

The equilateral triangle ABC has now been constructed on the given line AB.
