|Step 1||Place the protractor so that the origin (small hole) is over the point M.|
|Step 2||Rotate the protractor so that the base line is exactly along the line ML.|
|Step 3||Using (in this case) the inner scale, find the angle desired - here 42°.|
|Step 4||Make a mark at this angle, and remove the protractor|
|Step 5||With a ruler, draw a line from M to the mark you just made. Label this point V.|
|Step 6||Done. The line drawn makes an angle LMV with a measure of 42°|
