Best Answer

Yes

Set the compass at a reasonable width.

Put the point of the compass on the point of the angle.

Draw an arc on each arm of the angle.

With the point of the compass on where one arc intersects one arm of the angle, draw a further arc between the arms of the angle (roughly in the middle).

With the point of the compass on the other arc-arm intersection, draw another arc to intersect this just drawn arc.

With a straight edge join this intersection to the point of the angle - this line bisects the angle.

Q: Is it possible to bisect any given angle using only a straightedge and a compas?

No

no

Yes

Its true just got it wrong

create a 'v' parralel to the 'v' of your angle using the width of your ruler, join the two apexes and continue the line to biscect the angle.

True

No. It is possible to fold an angle on paper to bisect it.

No. The biggest possible obtuse angle is one that's a hair less than 180 degrees. Bisect that, and each half is the biggest possible ACUTE angle.

Yes

True

As a general rule, no.

Sure - just bisect it twice.
