Altitudes and Perpendicular Bisectors C A B Constructing an altitude of a triangle 1) Draw a triangle like ΔABC 2) Place the compass point on B and draw an arc that intersects side AC in two points. Label the points of intersection D and E. 3) Place the compass point at D and draw an arc below AC. Using the same compass setting, place the compass point on E and draw an arc to intersect the one drawn. 4)
