Construct an isosceles triangle ABC such that AB = 6cm, BC = AC = 4cm. Bisect ∠C internally and mark a point P on this bisector such that CP = 5 cm. Find the points Q and R which are 5 cm from P and also 5 cm from the line AB.
Steps of Construction:
i) Draw a line segment AB = 6 cm.
ii) With centers A and B and radius 4 cm, draw two arcs which intersect each other at C.
iii) Join CA and CB.
iv) Draw the angle bisector of angle C and cut off CP = 5 cm.
v) A line m is drawn parallel to AB at a distance of 5 cm.
vi) P as centre and radius 5 cm, draw arcs which intersect the line m at Q and R.
vii) Join PQ, PR and AQ.
Q and R are the required points.
