## Notes

**Construction of a Line Segment of a Given Length:**

1) Suppose we want to draw a line segment of length 4.7 cm.

**Use of ruler and compasses:**

A better method would be to use compasses to construct a line segment of a

given length.

The following are steps to construct a line segment of a given length.

**Step 1:** Draw a line l. Mark a point A on a line l.

**Step 2:** Place the compasses pointer on the zero mark of the ruler. Open it to place the pencil point up to the 4.7 cm mark.

**Step 3:** Taking caution that the opening of the compasses has not changed, place the pointer on A and swing an arc to cut l at B.** **

**Step 4: ** `bar"AB"` is a line segment of the required length.
