Constructing a Perpendicular at a Point on a Line - Problem 1

Brian was a geometry teacher through the Teach for America program and started the geometry program at his school
A square with a designated perimeter x can be constructed though knowledge of how to create a perpendicular bisector. First, bisect a line segment of length x. Repeat this process again to create four segments of length x/4. Duplicating one of these segments onto a new ray, constructing it so that it is perpendicular to the ray. Repeat with the other three segments to form a square—in which all four sides have the same length and all angles between sides are perpendicular.
