Unformatted text preview: Mitchell T. Heaton Mr. Szorc Geometry Honors 10-14-08 Chapter 3 Project Using a pencil and a triangular square, I would need to make two lines in order to show where to cut the board so as to make it 10’ x 8”. The first line I would draw would be a line four inches up from the bottom of the board parallel to the board’s base and perpendicular to the side. To ensure the line was straight, I would position the triangular square with its beveled edge parallel to the board’s base. Then I would insert my pencil tip into the crevice on the triangular square that is four inches up from the board’s base. Lastly, I would slide the triangular square along the board, using its beveled edge to keep it parallel, in order to create a line parallel to the board’s base that divides the board into a 4 inch section and an 8 inch section. Now, in order to create the line perpendicular to the board’s base that will create the 10 foot section I need, I will place the triangular square on the board so that the beveled edge is...
