Expert Answer:



1. Draw a triangle ABC of any measure.

2. Taking A as a centre and a suitable radius, draw an arc which cut the line BC at two points P and Q.

3. Taking P and Q as centre and suitable radius draw two arcs and let them intersect at R.

4. Join AR.

5. Hence, AR is the required perpendicular from A on BC.
