### Geometric construction using compass and ruler alone

Practically its possible to construct length, angles and all the basic geometric shapes using compass and ruler alone. This is called as Compass - Ruler construction.

Five basic figures that can be constructed with the compass and ruler are

Creating a line with two distinct points.

Creating the circle through one point with centre another point

Creating the point which is the intersection of two existing, non-parallel lines

Creating the one or two points in the intersection of a line and a circle (if they intersect)

Creating the one or two points in the intersection of two circles (if they intersect).

For example, just with two distinct points its easy to draw a line or two circles (keeping one point as center, draw a circle and keeping other point as center draw the other circle, in the way that both the circle intersect each other.
