# How do you construct a perpendicular line through a given point not on the line?

Space and Astronomy## How do you construct a perpendicular line through a point off the line?

Video quote: *That line segment a B is perpendicular to line PE and remember this is the symbol for perpendicular. So we have line segment a B is perpendicular to line PE.*

## How do you construct a line parallel to the given line through a point not on the line?

Video quote: *You can draw another arc. Right there off of P. So this part this vertex right here a and P are both this vertex abducted both angles. Then I'm going to go ahead and change the span of my compass.*

## How do you construct a line segment through the given point parallel to the given line segment?

Video quote: *And I'm gonna also make that same okay arc and then what we're gonna do is we're going to draw a line through this point and this intersection. And then we've got it so let's take a look at that.*

## How do you construct a parallel line through a point?

Video quote: *So we want to construct a line through point p that's parallel to line l. So in order to do this the first thing we want to do is just draw some random line. And the line is going to go.*

## How do you construct a perpendicular line using a compass?

Video quote: *Points on this line and if I can make a line that is always equidistant. From those two points then that line will be perpendicular.*
