ConceptConstructing a Quadrilateral When Two Diagonals and Three Sides Are Given

#### Question

Construct a quadrilateral ABCD given AD = 3.5 cm, BC = 2.5 cm, CD = 4.1 cm, AC = 7.3 cm and BD = 3.2 cm.

#### Solution

Steps of construction:

Step I: Draw CD = 4 . 1 cm .

Step II: With C as the centre and radius 7 . 3 cm, draw an arc .

Step III : With D as the centre and radius 3 . 5 cm, draw an arc to intersect the arc drawn in Step II at A .

Step IV: With D as the centre and radius 3 . 2 cm, draw an arc on the other side of AC .

Step V : With C as the centre and radius 2 . 5 cm, draw an arc to intersect the arc drawn in Step IV at B .

Step VI: Join BA, DA, BC and BD and AC to obtained the required quadrilateral . Is there an error in this question or solution?
