Constructing a Pedal Triangle

by

Rita Meyers

In order to construct a pedal triangle we start
out with triangle ABC and an arbitrary point P
Then construct a perpendicular line
to side AB of the triangle through point P with the point of intersection
being point R
We then construct a line perpendicular
to side BC through the point P with it's intersection labeled
as point S
And lastly construct a perpendicular
line to side CA through point P labeling the intersection point
T
Construct line segments connecting
points RST to form triangle RST; better known as the pedal triangle
