Let’s take an example

  1. Given a line l
    with point P not on it



  1. With P as center, and any radius,
    draw an arc intersecting the line at points A and B
  2. Now with A as center, and same radius  draw an arc.
    With B as center, and same radius as before, draw an arc



  1. Mark the point of intersection of the two arcs as point Q

          Join P & Q.



∴ PQ is the line perpendicular to line l
