## Construct a Rectangle (not a Square)

hi this is mr. Erlin continuing in our

effort to construct appropriate parallel

and intersecting line elements we're

going to build 50 for constructing a

rectangle that's not a square so to

begin with we did one segment that is

free and I'm going to pick it doesn't

really matter where but I am going to

produce a line that is perpendicular to

this segment which will give us one of

our right angles I'm going to choose

some length here and I can choose any

other link here I'm choosing this spot

but it doesn't matter all it does is it

produces the perpendicular there is a

nature of my sector going on here but

because I'm not concerned with that at

this point I'm simply choosing something

that gets me a perpendicular line

segment so that will be perpendicular

here and that gets me the beginning of

my rectangle as you can visualize what

I'm looking for is a rectangle like this

therefore I can do another one over here

somewhere

this is also similar to the

perpendicular perpendicular and I'm

going to end up with two lines that

would then be parallel and the trick is

if I want this to be a rectangle and not

a square well what would make it a

square is if this length were the same

as this length so to ensure that it's

not a square what I will do is measure

this length it would make it a square

make that notation up here and I have to

simply ensure that I go through some

point that is not there so one way I can

do that leveraging our prior skills is

do a line that's perpendicular through a

point on the line remember that's one of

our skills we just did my reference arc

from each of those points on the more

than halfway

in this case I want to demonstrate that

these end up in the same these end up

being the same suggested rectangular and

not a square and although we have not

proven this yet the fact that we've got

three angles at 90 degrees means that

the fourth angle must by default would

be another 90 degrees because all four

angles in a quadrilateral that's how we

construct a rectangle that is not a

square

how is a rectangle not a square

how to draw a rectangle that is not a square

what is a non square rectangle
