# Straightedge and Compass

Geometric figures, such as angles, can be constructed using straightedge and compass.

In this case, measuring instruments such as protractor and ruler are not permitted

A ruler can be used if and only if its markings are not used.

Below, find a variety of important construction in geometry:
