this is a really basic problem but i would really appreciate some help:
i'm working my way through the interactive construction site's problems and i'm stuck on the following, intermediate problem related to //ograms: the prob. can be found here: http://www.mathsnet.net/campus/construction/iqb3.html if you have the time to have a look, but i'll briefly describe the problem here:
you have to construct a //ogram from scratch, using only compass and ruler; i get the perpendicular right at B, then when i go to contruct the segment parallel to AB, i get stuck for some reason; if you have time, could somone pl write out the steps here that i need to follow.. thx kindly, mijo
