ConceptConstructing a Quadrilateral When Two Diagonals and Three Sides Are Given

#### Question

Construct a kite ABCD in which AB = 4 cm, BC = 4.9 cm and AC = 7.2 cm.

#### Solution

$\text { Steps of construction }:$

$\text { Step I: Draw AC = 7 . 2 cm } .$

$\text { Step II: With A as the centre and radius 4cm, draw arcs on both sides of the line segment AC }.$

$\text { Step III : With C as the centre and radius 4 . 9 cm, draw arcs on both sides of AC intersecting the previous arcs of step II at B and D }.$

$\text { Step IV: Join BA, DA, BC and CD .}$

$\text { Thus, the quadrilateral ABCD so obtained is the required kite } .$ Is there an error in this question or solution?
