    1. Draw the perpendicular bisector of BC.

    2. Draw a parallel to BC in a distance of 1 cm outside the triangle. P_1 is the point of intersection between the parallel and the perpendicular bisector.

    3. Draw a parallel to BC in a distance of 1 cm inside the triangle. P_2 is the point of intersection between the parallel and the perpendicular bisector.
