# Geometry 1.6.2 Standing On the Shoulders of Giants

- Author:

- Topic:
- Geometry

Here is a line,

*m*, and a point, C, not on the line. Use construction moves (straightedge and compass -- tools in the applet) to construct a line perpendicular to line*m*__that passes through point C__. (hint - the first step is similar to the first step of constructing an "angle bisector") Check that your construction passes the drag test. Be prepared to share your reasoning.## Attribution
