    Hello, MATNTRNG!

    Imagine a sheet of paper with two lines drawn on it, as shown.
    Without extending the paper or the lines, construct the bisector
    of the angle determined by the two lines.
    Code:
                                      *
                                  *
                              *
                          *  .
                      *       . 
                  *            . d1
              *                 .         L
          *                      .    o
    A *                           o
                              o
                          o
          o   o   o   ♠   o   o   o M
                  o   P       .
              o               .
          o                   .
                              . d1
                              .
                              .
    B *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

    Given two nonparallel line segments A and B.

    Construct line L, parallel to A and d_1 units from line A.

    Construct line M, parallel to B and d_1 units from line B.

    They intersect at point P which lies on the angle bisector.


    Repeat the procedure with distance d_2
    . . and locate point Q.


    Draw the line through P and Q.
