GIVEN : In Rectangle FLAT,
FL = 5 cm
LA = 3 cm
∠FLA = 90o
Step 1: Draw a rough sketch of the parallelogram and mark the given measurements.
Here , we are given only 3 measurements. But as FLAT is a rectangle , we can also write that FL = AT = 5 cm and LA = TF = 3 cm.
(now we got 5 measurements in total)
Step 2 : Draw ΔFLA using the measures FL = 5 cm , ∠FLA = 90°
and LA = 3 cm.
Step 3 : Locate the 4th vertex ‘T’ using the other 2 measurements TF = 3 cm and AT = 5 cm. To locate the fourth vertex ‘T’ , draw an arc , with center F and radius 3cm (FT=3cm).
Draw another arc with center A and radius 5cm (AT=5cm) which cuts the previous arc at T.
Step 4 : Join AT and FT to complete the required rectangle FLAT.
