Can You Make a Perfect Copy?
- Anthony Gillman
1. Try to draw a copy of the regular hexagon using only the pen tool. Draw your copy next to the hexagon given, and then drag the given one onto yours. What happened?
Here is a figure that shows the first few steps to constructing the regular hexagon. Use straightedge and compass moves to finish constructing the regular hexagon. Drag the given one onto yours and confirm that it fits perfectly onto itself.
3. How do you know each of the sides of the shape are the same length? Show or explain your reasoning.
