# Theres a faster construction

Geometry Level 5

Given a line $$l$$ and a point $$P$$ on $$l$$, what is the minimium number of uses of a straightedge or compass in order to construct a line through $$P$$ perpendicular to $$l$$?

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.
