The wording is rather clumsy . . .
Construct a triangle given: side (altitude to side ), (median to side ).
Draw a horizontal line
Erect a perpendicular to line and measure length to pointCode:A * | | Ha | | | L - - * - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Using center and radius , swing an arc cutting line atCode:A * |\ | \ Ha | \ Ma | \ | \ L - - * - - * - - D
is the midpoint of side
Using center and radius , swing arcs on both sides
. . cutting line at andCode:A * *|\ * * | \ * * | \ * * | \ * * | \ * * * * * * * * * * B Ża D Ża C
And is our triangle!
