A compass and straightedge construction is a technique of drawing geometric figures using only a straightedge and a compass.

The operations available are:

using the straightedge to draw a straight line determined by two given points
using the compass to draw a circle whose center is at a given point and whose radius is the distance between two given points
finding the points of intersection between straight lines and circles.
