Constructing an altitude of a triangle

1) Draw a triangle like ΔABC2) Place the compass point on B and draw an arc that intersects side AC in two points. Label the points of intersection D and E.

3) Place the compass point at D and draw an arc below AC. Using the same compass setting, place the compass point on E and draw an arc to intersect the one drawn.

4) Use a straightedge to align the vertex B and the point where the two arcs intersect. Draw a segment from the vertex B to side AC. Label the point of intersection F.
