Multiplication and division with straightedge and compass

Level pending

Given three lengths, \(a,b,c\), is it possible to construct a fourth length \(d\) such that

\[d=\frac{ab}{c}\]

using only a straightedge and compass?


All terminology in this question is explained in the first note of my straightedge and compass set. More straightedge and compass constructions can be found there.
