# Construct a segme

Given an angle of 90° and chord 5cm

Steps of construction:

Rough image: Explanation:

x + x + 90° = 180°

[using sum of all angles in a triangle = 180°]

2x + 90° = 180°

2x = 180° - 90°

2x = 900°

x = = 45°

Step 1: Draw a line segment AB = 5cm Step 2: Draw an angle of 45° on point A and B to intersect at O. Step 3: With centre ‘O’ and radius OA and OB, draw the circle. Step 4: Mark a point ‘C’ on the arc of the circle. Join AC and BC.

we get CAB = 90°. Thus, ACB is the required circle segment.
