Solution

The rough figure is as follow :

Actual construction is as follows (using the above rough fig.)

Steps :

  1. Draw AB = 5 cm.
  2. From A & B draw arcs of radii 5 cm and 7cm which intersect at D.
  3. From B & D draw arcs of radii 5.5 cm each which intersect at C.
  4. Join AD, BD, DC, and BC.
    Thus ABCD is the required quadrilateral.
