The steps of constructions are the following:

(i) With M as the centre and a convenient radius, draw an arc intersecting the line AB at two points C and B.

(ii) With C and D as centres and a radius greater than MC, draw two arcs, which cut each other at P.

(iii) Join PM. Then PM is perpendicular to AB through point M.
