# draw a line land take a point p on it through p draw a line segments pq perpendicular to l now draw a perpendicular pq at q use rular and compass

Dear student,

Please use line p instead of line *l** *and* *perpendicular pq instead of perpendicular xy.

(1) Draw a line *l* and mark a point X on it.

(2) Taking X as centre and with a convenient radius, draw an arc intersecting line *l* at two points A and B.

(3) With A and B as centres and a radius more than AX, construct two arcs intersecting each other at Y.

(4) Join XY. is perpendicular to *l*.

Similarly, a perpendicular to at the point Y can be drawn. The line is perpendicular to at Y.

Regards.
