Geometry 1.6.2 Standing On the Shoulders of Giants
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.
