Q. 164.3( 3 Votes )

Construct, if possible, a quadrilateral ABCD in which AB = 6 cm, BC = 7 cm, CD = 3 cm, AD = 5.5 cm and AC = 11 cm. Give reasons for not being able to construct, if you cannot. (Not possible, because in triangle ACD, AD + CD<AC).

Answer :

In a triangle, the sum of the length of its two sides must be greater than that of the third side.

In triangle ACD,

AD + CD = 5.5 + 3 = 8.5 cm

and AC = 11 cm

AD + CD < AC which is not possible.

So, the construction is not possible.
