Does anyone have an algorithm for constructing a triangle given one side, AB, and altitudes h and k from A and B respectively? (Using straightedge compass construction)
Hello, GoldendoodleMom!
Find an algorithm for constructing a triangle given one side, ,
and altitudes and from and respectively.

Draw line segment
Locate its midpoint
Draw a semicircle with diameterCode:* * * * * * * * * * * A * - - - - * - - - - * B M
With as center and radius , swing an arc cutting the semicircle at

Hello
For the past few days, I've been searching on the Internet for a triangle construction from its orthocenter, circumcenter and incenter. Unfortunately,I didn't find anything. Does anyone know something about this construction?
Thank you.
