Textbook Problem

Given: A line m and a point T not on m Suppose that you do the following:i) Construct a perpendicular line r from T to line m .ii) Construct a line s perpendicular to line r at point T .What is the relationship between lines s and m ?

To determine

To construct:

A perpendicular line r from T to line m and a line s perpendicular to line r at point T. Find the relationship between lines s and m.

Explanation

Approach:

Draw a straight line r from T in such a way that it is perpendicular to m.

Figure (1)

The line r from point T is perpendicular to line m is shown in figure (1).

Construct a straight line from point T in such a way that it is perpendicular to line r.
