Draw a right-angled triangle in which sides (other than hypotenuse) are of lengths 5cm and 12cm. Then construct another triangle whose sides are times the corresponding sides of the first triangle.

Answer :

Steps of Construction:


1. Draw a triangle ABC such that AB = 12cm, B = 90˚ and BC = 5cm.



2. Construct an acute angle BAX. Mark 4 points X1, X2, X3 and X4 on AX such that AX1 = X1X2 = X2X3 = X3X4.



3. Join X4 and B.



4. Draw X3B’ || X4B and B’C’ || BC



AB’C’ is the required triangle.
