Step 1: Using the same compass width draw two more arcs from point C, one above and the other below the line. Step 2: Without changing the compass width, draw two arcs from point B above and below the line segment. Step 3: Label the point of intersection of the arcs above the line segment as M and below the line as N. Step 4: Using a straightedge, join point M and point N.
