how do i construct a 80 degree angle with a compass...??
you cant. omly the multiples of 15 can be constructed in compass
Draw a point, and a long straight line through it. Put the centre of the compass over the point, with north on the compass (or zero degrees) on the line. Then draw a second line out from the point at 80 degrees on the compass. You'll then have a 80 degree angle between the lines.
It's usually a trick that teachers decide to do on their pupils. A compass is what you use to find north and a pair of compasses is used to draw circles.
but if i could make with a protactor i wouldnt hav asked this q
u mean my book has wrong information..............yeah ....hummm.
any more answers anyways 10x fr the ans..!!!!!!!!!!!
it is not possible to construct angles which are not divisible by 7.5 degree using a compass. but you are free to use a protractor for that purpose:)
totally rong ans miss shivani ........
u can use the help of a protractor
