|After doing this||Your work should look like this|
|1. Draw a line segment which will become one side of the angle. (Skip this step if you are given this line.) The exact length is not important. Label it PQ. P will be the angle's vertex.|
|2. Set the compasses on P, and set its width to any convenient setting.|
|3. Draw an arc across PQ and up over above the point P.|
|4. Without changing the compasses' width, move the compasses to the point where the arc crosses PQ, and make an arc that crosses the first one.|
|5. Draw a line from P, through the intersection of the two arcs.|
|6. Done. The angle QPR has a measure of 60°|
