Point P lies within acute angle XOY.

How can we find a point A on OX and a point B on OY such that P is the midpoint of a segment AB drawn between them?

Solution from another problem | Comment 2 of 3 |
Seeing this puzzle reminded me of a different one: Minimal area.  It has the same setup but a different goal: to minimize the enclosed area.  As it turns out in that puzzle the solution involved the line asked for in this puzzle.

A sequel was posted: Constructing Minimal Area.  Of which this puzzle is another version, so its solution will work here as well.
