Q:
# 10 PT QUESTION Meg constructed triangle POQ and then used a compass and straightedge to accurately construct line segment OS, as shown in the figure below: Which could be the measures of angle POS and angle POQ? a. Measure of angle POS is 25 degrees, measure of angle POQ is 40 degrees b. Measure of angle POS is 25 degrees, measure of angle POQ is 30 degrees c. Measure of angle POS is 20 degrees, measure of angle POQ is 40 degrees d. Measure of angle POS is 20 degrees, measure of angle POQ is 30 degrees

Accepted Solution

A:

The particular construction used will make OS the angle bisector of ∠POQ, so

.. ∠POS = (1/2)*∠POQ.

This is true for selection C.

.. ∠POS = (1/2)*∠POQ.

This is true for selection C.
