```					                                   How to construct an angle

First study the protractor you will be using to determine where the center point(vertex) is….

1) Is there a small hole you will put your pencil through to be the vertex

Or

Will you make a dot (vertex) and align the dot with a center mark|

2) Where is the zero line?

Is above the bottom of the protractor ????

Or
Equal with the bottom of the protractor.

Now you begin construction of your angle.

First, make the dot that is your vertex

Be it through the hole in the protractor
Or
A dot where you need the vertex to be on your paper you will align with the center |

Step Two

By placing the straightedge of your protractor in the center of your
vertex (dot) and drawing a line (traveling either from the left or right
from the vertex) REMEMBER TO PUT YOUR > ON THE END TO MAKE IT
CUPID’S ARROW.

The direction the arrow points at the zero you will use to construct your angle.

Starting at the zero (the one the arrow> is pointing to) find the measure on
the protractor: Mark the measure with a dot, line, etc.

Now raise your protractor and using the straightedge connect the vertex and
mark you just made with a line. Again, don’t forget your > at the end.

Now use your protractor to measure the angle to insure your angle (measure)
is correct.
