The steps of constructions are:

(i) Draw a circle with centre C and radius 3.4 cm.

(ii) Draw any chord \bar{AB}.

(iii) Taking A and B as centres and radius more than half of \bar{AB}, draw two arcs which cut each other at P and Q.

(iv) Join PQ. Then PQ is the perpendicular bisector of \bar{AB}.

This perpendicular bisector of \bar{AB} passes through the centre C of the circle.
