**To construct a Pedal
Triangle **

Step 1
Creat any acute triangle ABC
and extend the lines that make up the segments

Step 2
Pick any arbitrary point inside
or outside the triangle, H, and draw perpindicular lines from
each extended line to point H.

Step 3
H is called the Pedal Point and
you create the Pedal Triangle by conncting points were the perpindicular
lines (red) intersect
the extended lines containing the segments of the triangle(dotted)
at right angles.

Your Pedal Triangle, Pedal Point
and Parent Triangle may looke like this
