Q5. Construct a right triangle whose base is 12cm and sum of its hypotenuse and other side is 18 cm.
The steps of construction to follow:
Step 1: Draw a ray BX and Cut off a line segment from the ray.
Step 2: Now, construct an angle .
Step 3: Cut off a line segment BD of length 18 cm on BY. Then join the CD.
Step 4: Now, construct a perpendicular bisector of CD which intersects BD at A and AC is joined.
Thus, the constructed triangle is ABC.
