# Copy a Line Segment

## Basic Construction 1

We can use the rules of construction to copy a line segment! This is very easy using just the compass and line tools we learned in the definition section of this book.

## Tool Practice

Using the applet below, see if you can construct line CE by copying AB. You want to make a line coming out of C that is the same length as AB. Remember, that circles are a great way to make lines the same length because the radius of a circle is constant.
If you need help, watch the video provided but try to figure it out on your own first.
