Construct a Segment with a Given Midpoint and Endpoints on Two Given Lines
Given two lines
and
and a point
, construct a segment
such that
,
and
is its midpoint.
Construction
Choose any point
on
such that
is not perpendicular to
.
Draw a circle
with the center
and the radius
. Let a point
be the second intersection of
and
.
Let
and
be symmetric to
and
with respect to
. Then the quadrilateral
is a rectangle.
Let
be the intersection of
and the line
. Then the point
symmetric to
with respect to
is on
and
is the midpoint of
.
