1. Construct a sum of two angles.

In details, this construction problem has the following meaning, applicable to other problems as well (so, we will not repeat it).

Given two angles and a ray somewhere on a plane.

Using a given ray as one leg, construct another ray from the same starting point such that these two rays (one given and one constructed) form an angle, which has a measure equal to a sum of measures of two given angles.

2. Construct a difference between a bigger and a smaller angle.

3. Given a sum and a difference between two angles, construct these angles.

4. Divide an angle into 4, 8 and 16 congruent parts.

5. Construct a triangle by its two sides and an angle opposite to a bigger side.

Is it always a unique triangle? Analyse the number of solutions of this problem.

6. Construct a triangle by its two sides and an angle opposite to a smaller side.

Is it always a unique triangle? Analyse the number of solutions of this problem.

7. Construct an isosceles triangle by a base (a side, generally speaking, non-congruent to two others) and one of two other sides.

8. Construct an isosceles triangle by a base (a side, generally speaking, non-congruent to two others) and one of two congruent angles (usually called angles at the base or base angles).

9. Construct an isosceles triangle by one of two congruent sides and an angle between congruent sides (usually called an angle at the vertex).

10. Construct an isosceles triangle by one of two congruent sides and a base angle it forms with a base (a side, generally speaking, non-congruent to two others).

11. Construct a right triangle by its two legs (i.e. sides, perpendicular to each other, sometimes called also catheti).

12. Construct a right triangle by one of its legs (also known as cathetus) and a hypotenuse.

13. Construct a right triangle by a cathetus and an acute angle it forms with a hypotenuse.

14. Construct an isosceles triangle by an altitude to a base and one of two congruent sides.

15. Construct an isosceles triangle by an altitude to a base and an angle opposite to a base (i.e. vertex angle).

16. Construct an isosceles triangle by a base and an altitude towards one of two congruent sides.

17. Construct a right triangle by a hypotenuse and an acute angle it forms with one of catheti.

18. Given an angle and a point inside it. Construct a straight line crossing this point and cutting congruent segments from sides of a given angle.

19. Construct two segments by their given sum and difference.

20. Divide a given segment into 4, 8 and 16 congruent parts.

21. Given a straight line and two points anywhere on a plane. Construct a point on a given line equidistant to two given points.

22. Construct a point equidistant to three vertices of a given triangle.

23. Given an angle and a straight line that crosses both its sides. Construct a point on this line equidistant to two sides of a given angle.

24. Construct a point equidistant to three sides of a given triangle.

25. Given a straight line

**and two points**

*PQ***and**

*M***outside it, but on the same side from it. Construct a point**

*N***on the line**

*X***such that angles ∠**

*PQ***and ∠**

*PXM***are congruent.**

*QXN*26. Construct a right triangle by one of its catheti and a sum of hypotenuse and the other cathetus.

27. Construct a triangle by a side, an angle it makes with another side and a sum of two other sides.

28. Given an angle and two points, one on each side of an angle. Construct a point equidistant from both sides of an angle and, at the same time, equidistant from two given points on angle's sides.

Notice, that distances to angle's sides should be equal to each other, but not necessarily equal to distances to given points.
