Use ruler and compasses only for the following questions. All constructions lines and arcs must be clearly shown
Construct a ABC in which BC = 6.5 cm, ABC = 60°, AB = 5 cm.
Steps of construction:
1) Draw BC = 6.5 cm using a ruler.
2) With B as the centre and radius equal to approximately half of BC, draw an arc that cuts the segment BC at Q.
3) With Q as the centre and same radius, cut the previous arc at P.
4) Join BP and extend it
5) With B as the centre and radius 5 cm, draw an arc that cuts the arm PB to obtain point A.
6) Join AC to obtain ΔABC.
