    Dumb Geometric Construction

    Hi there! Please help me solve this geometric construction. It is due soon. I tried figuring it out for a long time but I can not solve it. There are 9 steps and the proof has 17 statements/reasons. Below is a list of numbered constructions I'm limited to. Thank you so much for answering.

    How would you know where the point H is? In other words, what is the distance JH and how would you know? I couldn't construct the triangle because it will turn out differently each time depending on the distance JH.

    Hi,
    The attachment shows a major hint. BTW, the only thing dumb about the question is that you expect someone here to do your assignment for you.
