A divider’s two arms have a point which ends touch when closed. To compare sizes of drawing elements open the divider points across one element then compare against the second or compare by measuring each against a scale ruler. Measure distance by opening the divider points to a set scale then plot across the drawing or map to get a distance. A divider is also used to divide a line into segments.
