# NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 14 Practical Geometry

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 14 Practical Geometry: Constructions of figures or sketches are mandatory for the design of different types of equipment, instruments, buildings, etc. You may have seen in films or in your real-life architect drawing sketches of the building using a different kind of geometrical instruments. Now sketches are designed in computers using different software available. Even to draw sketches using the software it is mandatory to have an idea of how to draw those sketches. The NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 14 introduces a few ruler and compass-based constructions of figures. Also in the NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths we will use set squares. The chapter starts with the construction of the circle of a given radius using a compass and then discuss the construction of line segments and angles.

While constructing the lines in the NCERT Solutions for Class 6 in some questions it is asked to use the compass. That is if you have to construct a line of length 10 cm draw a straight line of length more than 10 cm. Mark a point A at the starting of the line. Now take the length 10 cm on the compass and keep the pointing edge of the compass on A and cut an arc on the line with the other end of the compass where the pencil is attached. Mark the point on the line where arcs cuts as B. Now AB is the required length. There are different other constructions explained in the NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 14, which are listed here.
