Q. 1 B3.8( 9 Votes )

Construct rectangle ABCD with the following data.

AB = 6 cm, AC = 7.2 cm.

Answer :

AB = 6 cm, AC = 7.2 cm



Construction:


1) Draw a line segment ‘AB’ of length ‘6’cm.


2) Draw a perpendicular line to ‘AB’ using Protractor at point ‘B’.


3) Now, taking ‘A’ as centre draw an arc of length ‘7.2’cm.


4) The arc will intersect the line at a point, this is the point ‘C’. Join the points ‘A’, ’C’ to form line segment ‘AC’ and ‘B’, ’C’ to form line segment ‘BC’.


5) Now draw perpendicular line to line segment ‘BC’ using protractor at point ‘C’.


6) Now draw perpendicular line to line segment ‘AB’ using protractor at point ‘A’.


7) These two perpendicular lines intersect at a point, this point is ‘D


8) Join points ‘A’, ’D’ to form line segment ‘AD’ and points ‘B’, ’D’ to form line segment ‘BD’.


9) Thus Rectangle ‘ABCD’ is formed.
