Let ABCD be the rectangle such that :

Where AB = 5 cm and BC = 4 cm.

We know that the opposite sides of a rectangle are equal and all the angles are 90°.

Steps of construction:

Step 1. Draw a line segment AB = 5 cm. Construct an angle of 90° at A and B. 

Step 2. Construct an arc of radius =AD =  BC = 4 cm with A and B as the centre . The intersection points are C and D.

Step 3. Join C to D.

ABCD is the required rectangle.
