    Dumb Geometric Construction

    Please help me solve this construction. The due date is soon, but I can't seem to solve it. Thank you so much for helping. The construction has 3 steps. The proof has 9 statements/reasons(I think I can figure out the proof myself though). Below is a list of constructions I'm limited to.

    Reflect the point a in the line ef to get its image a' on the other side of the line ef.

    Joint the point a' with b to determine the position of the point c. Which is unique see the attached figure.

    The proof is easy..do it your self.
