# how do i construct a 80 degree angle with a compass...??

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:)

• -3

u can use the help of a protractor

• -6

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..!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

you cant. omly the multiples of 15 can be constructed in compass

not possible

u need to make it with a protractor

Any angle that is not divisible by 15,is to be drawn with a protractor.

Hey guys, the method I will be telling isn't something which can be justified, at least by me. However, it yields desired results, so you can go ahead with it
you must be knowing how to construct a 60 o angle, so I won't be writing down steps for that.
problem arises when we have to construct 20 o angle, so here are the steps :
1. draw any line PQ. Mark a point O anywhere between P and Q on the line.
2. With O as centre, and any suitable radius, draw an arc intersecting PQ at A and B .
3. With B as centre, and he same radius, cut an arc C on previously drawn arc AB. This is the normal 60 o angle.
4. With B and C as centres, cut arcs intersecting at L. This is the bisected 60o ie 30 o
5. BUT DO NOT join L to O, instead join L to A. Angle LAQ is the required 20 o triangle.
6. So now you can construct  60o on it . HOPE IT HELPS :D

draw a point O,and a straight line through it. Put the centre of compass on the point O, start from 0 degree and mark a small point on 80 degree and then join the point and the marked point.Then 80 degree will be constructed

YES WE CAN MAKE 80 DEGREE FROM CAMPASS.

same as above

A 80 degree angle can't be drawn by a compass. It can only be drawn by a protractor.
• -4
YES WE CAN DO IT

• 3
ONLY  MULTIPLES  OF  15  DEGREES  ARE  POSSIBLE  TO  MAKE  WITH  A  COMPASS

ELSE HAVE TO BE MADE BY A PROTRACTOR
• -1
Since 80 degree is not divisible by 15 this angle cannot be drawn by compass and a ruler and we can only draw angles that are divisible by 15 so yeah..
• -2
no we cant as it is not divisible by 15 as for this we will have to add 25 to 60 degree angle or 10 to 75 degree angle or subtract 5 from 90 degree angle and these all are  not possible so it is impossible

• 2
it is not constructed by compass because the those are divisible by 15 only those numbers are constructed by compass
• 31
It can't be constructed

You all are wrong totally it is possible to construct I will tell after somtime

Dont have money to buy a protractor
• -3
Impossible
• -2
its not constructed by compass...but if you divide 3 parts from 75 to 90 degree than its easy to constructed...
• -2
Not possible
• -6
Yes, you can construct 80 degree.Don't worry it's possible. I think you have known how the 60 degree can be drawn with compass and ruler. First you have to draw 60 degree angle by compass and ruler then over the 60 degree angle you have to draw 20 by compass and ruler degee angle. Then (60+20)= 80 degree it do easy. Go through the links first for 60 degree https://youtu.be/eISDJl_BKuA , then for 20 degee https://youtu.be/hpzG7GkbDbA
• -2
It is possible
• -2
The angles constructed by compass are divisible by 15.....So angle of 80 does not constructed by a compass...
• -2
Dont use of compass here . AN Protractor is enough
• -2
IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO CONSTRUCT SUCH AN ANGLE BECAUSE IT DOES NOT COME UNDER THE TABLE OF FIFTEEN. THE ANGLES WHICH CAN BE CONSTRUCTED BY COMPASS   ARE 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90,ETC..
• -2
no

It is not possible

No we cannot because it is not divisible by 15

No , 80 degree angle cannot be constructed with compass it can be constructed with protactor.
• -2
Do it with protector and rounder
• -3
80 degree angle is not possible as it is not the multiple of 15.

Easy i will show u how to constuct it

It cant be consyructed you should use protracor

By drawing 2 lines at 2; 40degree.

Sorry but can't make 80degree with compass because in compass first cut is 60? and second cut is 120? and in between 60?and 120? is 90? and in between 0?and 60? is 30? and in between 90?and 120?is 110? and in between 90?and 60? is 75?.THANKU

it is possible or here we can keep a protector and measure 80 degree and make a cut with compass :)

It's not possible as it don't come in the table of 15 .

80 degree can only be done by a protractor

You can construct only those angles with compass who are multiples of 15. OK.....

Please give one pic as example

First draw a circle and then put the de straight in straight angle and then mark a point and see where is 80?located and then mark it
• 0
Not only multiples of 15 but every multiple of 5 is possible to be constructed by compass..though its not extreme accurate every time To draw 80 degree first take a line segment AB.Mark point O on AB.Then keeping compass at O draw a semicircle.Construct 60 degree and a longer 120 degree gradually.Then construct 90°.After that from 90 degree draw another arc on 120 degrees arc.That will be 60 degree.Then keeping compass once on 90 degree and once on new 60 degree draw 2 arcs and let it meet.Join the point with a line and 80 degree is ready.Its very easy.

How do i construct a 80 degree angle with a compass
• 0

• -1
The angles which can be easily constructed by the help of compass:-
1) 50?
2)30?
3)75?
4)90?
5)120?
6)135?
7)150?
8)180? and etc.

The mentioned angle i.e., 80? can be easily made with the help of ruler or protractor.

First take a line segment with the length of your choice then name it. For example I am naming it AB, so now take the measure of the length of length of AB on your compass and draw an arc. Now again the same length take an Arc from D and the previous are now this angle is 80 degree.

Hope that helps!!

Steps are as follows
1. Draw a line segment of any length
2. Consider any point A on the line segment draw a semi circle. And name the semicircle BC
3. Extend the line segment till left end of semicircle.
4. Draw an arc D from point C on line segment of same measurement that of semicircle.
5. Measure length BC.
6. Cut arcs from point B and D. That will give you a point of intersection.
7. Join the arc intersection with point A
8. Measure the angle this is 80?.

Nah we can draw it as per the rule of mathematics we can do it but if you don't know than you can't say that it is not possible

only angles divided by 15 can be constructed so not possible
