## 4.9 Drawing an Equilateral Triangle

Side *AB* is given. With *A* and *B* as centers and *AB* as radius, lightly construct arcs to intersect at *C* (Figure 4.32a). Draw lines *AC* and *BC* to complete the triangle.

**4.32** Drawing an Equilateral Triangle

**Alternative Method** Draw lines through points *A* and *B*, making angles of 60° with the given line and intersecting *C* (Figure 4.32b).
