# draw a line XY.Take two points M and P on opposite sides of XY.From M draw perpendicular on XY and from P draw a perpendicular on XY(use ruler and compass)

We follow these steps :

Step 1 ) Draw a line XY , and take two points M and P on opposite sides .

Step 2 ) Take arc larger than the perpendicular distance from the point " M " to the line XY . Taking center " M " draw Two arc that cut our line XY at E and F

Step 3 ) With same radius take center E and F draw two arc other side of point " M " these arc intersect at " G "

Step 4 ) Join line MG , so MG is perpendicular on XY

Step 5 ) Take arc larger than the perpendicular distance from the point " P " to the line XY . Taking center " P " draw Two arc that cut our line XY at A and B

Step 6 ) With same radius take center A and B draw two arc other side of point " P " these arc intersect at " C "

Step 7 ) Join line PC , so PC is perpendicular on XY
