In Exercises 39 and 42, refer to the line segments shown.Construct an equilateral triangle in which the altitude to any side has length A B .

To determine

To construct:

The equilateral triangle in which the altitude to any side has length AB.

Explanation

The length of all the altitudes is equal to the length of AB. That is,

32x=AB.

1. Construct a line segment AB.

2. Take A as center and the length of x as radius draw an arc above the line AB.

3. Take B as center and the length of x as radius draw an arc above the line AB
