## Illegal Moves

Given segment $\overline{AB}$, follow these steps:

• Draw a circle centered at $A$ with radius $AB$
• Mark a point at the middle of $\overline{AB}$, label it $C$
• Draw a circle centered at $B$ with radius $BC$
• Label the intersection above $B$ as $D$ and below $B$ as $E$
• Draw segments $\overline{AD}$, $\overline{DE}$, and $\overline{AE}$, and trace $\Delta ADE$ onto patty paper
