Using a protractor and a ruler, follow the instructions below to draw three different shapes.
Steps for drawing Shape \(1\):
Draw a horizontal line segment \(AB\) of length \(4\,\)cm.
From \(B\), draw line segment \(BC\) of length \(8\,\)cm at an angle of \(32\degree\) to \(AB\).
Draw a line segment connecting \(C\) and \(A\).
What is the measure of angle \(ACB\) in your shape?
What kind of triangle did you draw?
Steps for drawing Shape \(2\):
Draw a horizontal line segment \(AB\) of length \(6\,\)cm.
From \(B\), draw line segment \(BC\) of length \(7\,\)cm at an angle of \(135\degree\) to \(AB\).
From \(C\), draw line segment \(CD\) of length \(6\,\)cm at an angle of \(45\degree\) to \(BC\), parallel to \(AB\).
Draw a line segment connecting \(D\) and \(A\).

Steps for drawing Shape \(3\):
Draw a vertical line segment \(AB\) of length \(5\,\)cm.
From \(B\), draw line segment \(BC\) of length \(5\,\)cm at an angle of \(90\degree\) to \(AB\).
Draw line segment \(AD\) of length \(7\,\)cm, parallel to \(BC\).
Draw a line segment connecting \(D\) and \(C\).
