Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you have to construct another circle to make an intersection to make a point? I felt like that made no sense...^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to find the perpendicular bisector you will have to construct two more arcs, but the circle you continue the line to is already there.
