Circle Construction
Posted:
Oct 14, 2003 9:48 PM


Hello!
Draw the line segment AB.
Through the midpoint C of AB, construct line M parallel to line L.
From any point on M, drop a perpendicular to line L. This is the radius R of the circle.
Using point B as center, swing an arc of radius R, cutting line M at O.
O is the center of the desired circle.
