When constructing perpendicular lines with a compass and straightedge, how should you start the construction? Open the compass and mark two points of intersection between arcs from the given line. Use a straightedge to find the length of the given line and then make an arc above it. Open the compass to the width of the original line to measure it. Use a straightedge to create two arcs above and below the original line.
