Solution

Steps of Construction :

  1. Draw a line segment AB = 6.2 cm
  2. Cut off BP = 4 cm
  3. With P as the centre and some radius draw arc meeting AB at the points C, D.
  4. With C, D as centres and equal radii [each is more than half of CD] draw two arcs, meeting each other at the point O.
  5. Join OP. Then OP is perpendicular for AB.
