    |dw:1377663929553:dw| start with the solid line, draw the circle and the dashed line then you have a straight line with length 2MN. Find the perpendicular bisector.

    |dw:1377664027917:dw| continue the perpendicular bisector out to the edge of the first circle you drew so it has a length of MN

    do you have to construct another circle to make an intersection to make a point? I felt like that made no sense...^_^

    to find the perpendicular bisector you will have to construct two more arcs, but the circle you continue the line to is already there.
