## How do you layout a 45 degree angle?

**Draw a line from the corner of the original right angle to the center point on the diagonal line between the legs of the angle**. This bisects the right angle, creating two 45-degree angles.

## How many 1 degree turns do you need to create a 45 degree angle?

You would have to do that 45-degree angle **eight times** to make it back to where you started. And so we can say that it takes eight 45-degree angles to make a full turn.

## How do you lay out angles?

**How to Lay Out Right Angles in Construction**

- Measure 3 feet out from the angle you want to make 90° in one direction.
- Measure 4 feet out from the angle you want to make 90° in the other direction.
- Measure across the two points and adjust the angle until the distance on the third side of the triangle is 5 feet.
