You are given a point M and an angle C in the plane. Using a ruler and a compass, draw a line through the point M that cuts from the angle C a triangle with a given perimeter p.

In the figure below, a green line has been drawn through the point M that creates a green triangle with the angle C. The task is to create such a triangle that will have a given perimeter p. The ruler you are given functions as a straight edge and also allows you to measure distances.
