Choose a point on the line and label it X. 2. Place the compass point on X and draw arcs to intersect line a on both sides of a X. Label these points R and S. 3. Open the compass wider. Place the compass point at R and draw an arc above X. With the compass at the same setting, place the compass point at S and draw an arc that intersects the previous arc. Label this intersection point Y. 4. Use the straight edge to draw a line through X and Y. Is perpendicular to line a ? C ha pt er 1 53 Te ac hi ng G eo m etr y wi th M an ip ul ati ve s

Materials pencils/pens compass straightedge protractor paper Construct a line perpendicular to another line through a point NOT on the line. 1. Draw a line and label it m . Choose any point above m and label it P. 2. Open the compass to a width greater than the shortest distance from P to m . Draw a large arc to intersect m twice. Label these points of intersection T and U. 3. Place the compass point at T and draw an arc below m. 4. Using the same compass setting, place the compass point at U. Draw an arc to intersect the one drawn from T. Label this point of intersection A.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
