Question:

Draw a line segment of length 8.6 cm. Bisect it and measure the length of each part.

 

Solution:

Steps of construction:

1. Draw a line segment AB of 8.6 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 which intersects AB at C.

Therefore AC = BC = 4.3 cm
