Construct the following quadrilaterals.
OR = 6 cm
RE = 4.5 cm
EO = 7.5 cm
We know that opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal in length and also these are parallel to each other.
Hence, ME = OR, MO = ER
A rough sketch of this parallelogram can be drawn as follows.
1) Δ EOR can be constructed by using the given measurements as follows.
2) Vertex M is 4.5 cm away from vertex O and 6 cm away from vertex E. Therefore, while taking O and E as centres, draw arcs of 4.5 cm radius and 6 cm radius respectively. These will intersect each other at point M.
3) Join M to O and E.
MORE is the required parallelogram.
