ConceptConstructing a Quadrilateral When the Lengths of Four Sides and a Diagonal Are Given

Question

Construct the following quadrilaterals.

Quadrilateral ABCD

AB = 4.5 cm

BC = 5.5 cm

CD = 4 cm

AD = 6 cm

AC = 7 cm

Solution

Firstly, a rough sketch of this quadrilateral can be drawn as follows.

1) ΔABC can be constructed by using the given measurements as follows.

2) Vertex D is 6 cm away from vertex A. Therefore, while taking A as centre, draw an arc of radius 6 cm.

3) Taking C as centre, draw an arc of radius 4 cm, cutting the previous arc at point D. Join D to A and C.

ABCD is the required quadrilateral.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
