At times you may need to move a geometric figure from one location to
another on the same or different drawing paper. Transfer polygons, and
irregular figures by first drawing a triangle, square, rectangle, or circle
around the figure. You should know how to accurately transfer figures.
To transfer an angle, use this table:
Given angle ABC, lay off a line equal to line AB at the new
location on the same or different drawing paper (A, B).
Use any convenient radius (R, R) and draw arcs using A and A as
Where the arcs intersect lines AB and AB, draw two arcs (r, r)
equal to the distance between A and C.
Draw a straight line from A and A to the intersection of the two
arcs R and r.
Figure 2-24 illustrates how to transfer angles.
