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

Question

Construct the following quadrilaterals.

Quadrilateral JUMP

JU = 3.5 cm

UM = 4 cm

MP = 5 cm

PJ = 4.5 cm

PU = 6.5 cm

Solution

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

1) Δ JUP can be constructed by using the given measurements as follows

2) Vertex M is 5 cm away from vertex P and 4 cm away from vertex U. Taking P and U as centres, draw arcs of radii 5 cm and 4 cm respectively. Let the point of intersection be M.

3) Join M to P and U.

JUMP is the required quadrilateral.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
