Use Axioms, Proposition 1, Mauney’s Postulate, and Congruence Theorems SAS and SSS to bisect a given line segment. Also, construct a line perpendicular to a given line segment. How do we define a right angle, today? According to Euclid, what is a right angle? Why did Euclid define right angle in such a strange way? When a straight line standing on a straight line makes the adjacent angles equal to one another, each of the equal angles is right, and the straight line standing on the other is called a perpendicular to that on which it stands.
