Use ruler and compasses only for the following questions. All constructions lines and arcs must be clearly shown
Mark 2 points X and Y which are a distance of 3.5 cm from A and also equidistant from AC and BC. Measure XY.
Steps for construction :
1) We known that the points at a distance of 3.5 cm from A will surely lie on the circle with centre A.
2) Also, the points on the angle bisector CH are the points equidistant from AC and BC.
3) Mark X and Y which are at the intersection of the circle and the angle bisector CH.
4) Measure XY. XY = 5 cm
