Drawing Perpendicular Lines Exercise

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

Lines perpendicular to each other may be drawn by using a triangle in combination with the T-square. To draw a line perpendicular to a given line place a triangle against the T-square and move them together until the hypotenuse of the triangle matches the line. Turn the triangle on its right angled corner until the perpendicular line can be drawn on the hypotenuse of the triangle.
