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.
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.
