Draw the following:

A rectangle with adjacent sides of length 5 cm and 4 cm.

Opposite sides of a rectangle have their lengths of same measure and also, all the interior angles of a rectangle are of 90º measure. The given rectangle ABCD may be drawn as follows.

(1)A rough sketch of this rectangle ABCD can be drawn as follows.

(2) Draw a line segment AB of 5 cm and an angle of 90º at point A and B.

(3) As vertex C and D are 4 cm away from vertex B and A respectively, cut line segments AD and BC, each of 4 cm, from these rays.

(4) Join D to C.

ABCD is the required rectangle.
