    that reply doesn't help much... did you watch any of the "videos"

    the first one on constructing the perpendicular bisector was pretty straightforward.

    do you have a compass and straightedge?

    No compass and straightedge. I am currently reviewing college algebra. I will leave geometry for a future review.
