# Note: Exercises preceded by an asterisk are of a more challenging nature.In Exercises 39 and 42, refer to the line segments shown.Construct an isosceles triangle in which each leg has length C D and the altitude to the base has length A B .

To determine

To construct:

The isosceles triangle in which each leg has length CD and the altitude to the base has length AB.

Explanation

Given:

Construct an isosceles triangle in which each leg has length CD and the altitude to the base has length AB.

Calculation:

1. Draw any arbitrary line.

2. Take any point on the line B and draw a perpendicular line and locate a point A measuring the distance AB.

3. Take A as center and the length of CD as radius draw arcs on the arbitrarily constructed line and label the intersection point as x and y.
