Constructing a Line Segment
This video explains how to construct a line segment. When constructing a line segment, we use a compass and straightedge to first draw a ray or line and then a point that will serve as an endpoint of the new segment. Next, we measure the given segment with a compass and make a mark with the pencil end. Without changing the spacing of the compass, place the sharp end of the compass on the point drawn on the new line/ray, and make a mark on the line/ray. This is our line segment.(2:02)
Constructing a Perpendicular Bisector
When looking at a line segment, there is only one line that will pass through the midpoint that will be a constant distance between the two endpoints. This line is called the perpendicular bisector. This video explains how to construct the perpendicular bisector by first finding the midpoint of the line segment and then using a compass and straight edge to draw the perpendicular line. (1:29)
Constructing a Perpendicular
The shortest distance between a point not on a line and a line is along the perpendicular to the line. This video describes how constructing a perpendicular to a line uses the same process as constructing the perpendicular bisector of a line segment, but with one additional step. The first step is to swing an arc from the point and intersect the line in two places, which creates a segment that can be bisected. (2:06)
