To construct a square using the inscribed circle method, use this table:
Step
1
Action
Draw horizontal and vertical lines intersecting at right angles to
each other.
2
Using the intersection of these lines as a centerline, draw a circle
with a diameter equal to the distance between two opposing sides
of the square.
3
Use a 45° triangle to draw straight lines tangent to the
circumference of the circle and intersecting each other at 90°.
Figure 2-41 shows
