Economical Constructions

In this section we review some very basic elementary constructions studied in the first lessons of geometry. Rather unexpectedly, it turns out that these standard constructions can be improved: the same result can be obtained faster, that is, by drawing a smaller number of lines (straight lines and circles).

Perpendicular from a point not on the line

Drop a perpendicular to a line
from a point not on the line

Perpendicular at a point on line

Erect a perpendicular to a line
at a point on it

Parallel Line

Draw a straight line through a given point
parallel to a given straight line
