Q8. Draw a circle of radius 4 cm. Draw any two of its chords. Construct the perpendicular bisectors of these chords. Where do they meet?
The steps of constructions are:
(i) Draw the circle with O and radius 4 cm.
(ii) Draw any two chords and in this circle.
(iii) Taking A and B as centres and radius more than half AB, draw two arcs which intersect each other at E and F.
(iv) Join EF. Thus EF is the perpendicular bisector of chord .
(v) Similarly draw GH the perpendicular bisector of chord .
These two perpendicular bisectors meet at O, the centre of the circle.
