From the origin point, measure 1.5 cm (3/5") downwards, along an edge parallel to the edge of the paper. The best thing to do at this point would be to draw a line from the origin to the bottom of the paper (or nearly), and then measure off the 1.5 cm or 3/5" distance from the origin point along this line. Mark the point A with a little dot or small orthogonal bar so that you can see it beyond the edges of the line. The line may be constructed by measuring the distance from the origin point O to the edge of the paper, at a right angle to the edge, then measuring the same distance near the bottom of the sheet, then aligning the ruler edge to the two marks and drawing the long parallel from the origin point down.
