Draw a line segment AB of length 5.8 cm.
Question:

Draw a line segment AB of length 5.8 cm. Draw the perpendicular bisector of this line segment.

Solution:

Steps of construction:

1. Draw a line segment AB of 5.8 cm.

2. Keeping A as center and radius more than half of AB draw arcs on each side of AB.

3. Keeping B as center and the same radius draw arcs on each side of AB cutting the previous arcs at P and Q respectively.

4. Join the points P and Q.

Hence PQ is the perpendicular bisector of AB
