### CURVES FORMED FROM STRAIGHT LINES

**What you need are:**

**STEP 1**: The basic curve formation starts with two lines intersecting at a point. One is vertical and the other is horizontal. The lines resembles the positive x- and y- axes of the Cartesian plane that bound the first quadrant.

**STEP 2**: Put dots or marks on the lines. Make sure that they have equal intervals. You may use the a rule to determine the intervals. Make sure also that there are equal number of dots for the two lines. The dots will be paired so there will be a dot left out if the number of dots are unequal.

**STEP 3**: Pair the dots by connecting them using a line. Start with the uppermost dot in the vertical line paired with the leftmost dot in the horizontal line. You may also start with the rightmost dot of the horizontal line paired with the lowermost dot of the horizontal line. Any of these would yield to the same sets of lines.

The above figures used perpendicular lines. You can make the curve narrower by decreasing the angle being formed by the two lines.

Aside from the perpendicular lines, you can also use other shapes or polygons like a square or a circle. You can try using a triangle, a pentagon, a hexagon and so on.
