Draw the following.
Q3. A rectangle with adjacent sides of lengths 5 cm and 4 cm.
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.
