1. Open the compasses to a distance greater than half the distance between F and G.

2. Put the compass point on F and draw a semicircle that crosses line FG.

3. Repeat 2. with the compass point on G.

4. The two semicircles will intersect at two points, so use the straight edge to draw a line between them.  This line will be perpendicular to line FG.
