Draw a line segment AB = 5 cm and draw its perpendicular bisector.
Steps of Construction:
1. Draw a line segment AB = 5 cm
2. With A as centre and radius equal to more than half of AB, draw two arcs, one above AB and one below AB.
3. With B as centre and the same radius draw two arcs which cut the previously drawn arcs at C and D.
4. Join CD, intersecting AB at E.
Therefore, CD is the perpendicular bisector of AB at point E.
