Assignment 9 Pedal Triangles Problem 1 for Kanita DuCloux

For this assignment, I will make a script to construct the pedal triangle RST to triangle ABC where P is any point in the plane of ABC.


Click on pedal to give it a try. You need four points, the three vertices of triangle ABC and the pedal point P.



Suppose the pedal point is the centroid of the triangle.

Then, when I use the pedal script on the four points above, I get


To try this you must use two scripts, one to construct the centroid and then the pedal triangle script. Click on centroid, give three points to find the centroid. Then, click on pedal (highlight the original three points which are the vertices of the triangle and the centroid P) and apply that script to find the pedal triangle given the centroid as the pedal point.
