Constructions

Question 5:

Draw a triangle ABC with side BC = 6 cm, AB = 5 cm and ∠ABC = 60°. Then construct a triangle whose sides areof the corresponding sides of the triangle ABC.

Give the justification of the construction.

Answer:

A ΔA'BC' whose sides are of the corresponding sides of ΔABC can be drawn as follows.

Step 1

Draw a ΔABC with side BC = 6 cm, AB = 5 cm and ∠ABC = 60°.

Step 2

Draw a ray BX making an acute angle with BC on the opposite side of vertex A.

Step 3

Locate 4 points (as 4 is greater in 3 and 4), B1, B2, B3, B4, on line segment BX.

Step 4
