#### Solution Preview

1. Draw a line segment AB of length 1 inch. Now, extend AB to C such that BC = X inches when squareroot(X) is desired. Now with line AC (of total length X+1 inches) as diameter, draw a semicircle. Draw a vertical line from B to intersect ...

#### Solution Summary

A "golden triangle" is constructed from a legth of wire. Line segments are investigated.
