# Adina is constructing a line perpendicular to YJ←→. She has already constructed two arcs as shown. She moves her compass point to Y to construct an arc above the line. What must be true about the width of Adina’s compass opening before she draws the arc?

IT must be wider

#### Explanation:

If the compasses are smaller then the two arcs will not meet.

If they are the same, then they will meet at C.
