Full Version: Construct two lines with specific angle in between
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
In Geometry app, there are set of geometry elements e.g line, circle, etc.

If I want to draw two lines (or perhaps rays) meeting at endpoint with specified angle (for example, drawing two lines meeting at the endpoint with angle between two line of 20 degree).

Any idea to do that in Geometry app?
Here is how I did it:

"GA:= point(-4.,−4.2); // c(FF000000) v(1) \nGB:= point(7.,3.3); // c(FF000000) v(1) \nGD:= circle(GA,GB-GA); // c(FF000000) v(1) \nGE:= element(GD,0); // c(FF000000) v(1) a(t(1) s(3) p(3) b(0) e(6.2832) S(0.2)) \nGG:= line(GA,GE); // c(FF000000) v(1) \nGH:= element(GD,20/180*π); // c(FF000000) v(1) a(t(1) s(3) p(3) b(0) e(6.2832) S(0.2)) \nGI:= line(GA,GH); // c(FF000000) v(1) \n"▶Instruction


Perhaps someone else can come up with a more direct way to do it.

I don't know if this work with HP Prime, but I did it in XCas.

line1 := line([1,1], [3,4]);
line2 := line([1,1], slope = tan(20/180*pi + atan(slope(line1))))
