Vijay’s class teacher told him to mark two points A and B on a line segment PQ of length 10 cm such thatand . He does not know how to construct it. Can we help him?
Let us go through the video to first try and mark a point A such that.
Now let us try to mark a point B in the same way.
It is given that.
Let us take PB = x and BQ = 2x. It is also given that PQ = 10 cm.
But, PQ = PB + BQ
10 cm = x + 2x
3x = 10 cm
x = cm
Now, it is difficult to mark a point B on the line segment PQ, since the value of x is in decimal form and even non-terminating.
We can observe that the mark…
