# Constructions

#### Question 6:

Draw a triangle ABC with side BC = 7 cm, ∠B = 45°, ∠A = 105°. Then, construct a triangle whose sides are times the corresponding side of ΔABC. Give the justification of the construction.

#### Answer:

∠B = 45°, ∠A = 105°

Sum of all interior angles in a triangle is 180°.

∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°

105° + 45° + ∠C = 180°

∠C = 180° − 150°

∠C = 30°

The required triangle can be drawn as follows.

**Step 1**

Draw a ΔABC with side BC = 7 cm, ∠B = 45°, ∠C = 30°.

**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 4 and 3), B_{1, }B_{2, }B…
