Solution

Steps of construction:
1. Draw a line ST = 7.5 cm.
2. With T as centre draw an angle ∠ STX = 110°.  
3. With T as centre and 5.7 cm as radius, cut an arc on XT and name the point of intersection as N.
4. Join SN. Δ NTS is thus obtained.
5. Draw the perpendicular bisectors of the lines ST and NT. Let these perpendicular bisectors meet at point O. 
4. With O as centre and OT as radius, construct a circle touching all the vertices of the Δ NTS. 
This circle is thus the required circumcircle. 

Steps of construction:
1. Draw a line ST = 7.5 cm.
2. With T as centre draw an angle ∠ STX = 110°.  
3. With T as centre and 5.7 cm as radius, cut an arc on XT and name the point of intersection as N.
4. Join SN. Δ NTS is thus obtained.
5. Draw the angle bisectors of angle S and T and let them meet at point O. 
6. Draw the perpendicular from point O to the line ST. Join OP.
7. With O as centre and OP as radius, draw a circle touching all the sides of the triangle.
This is the required incircle.

Concept: Construction of the Incircle of a Triangle.
