Q5. Given of length 7.3 cm and of length 3.4 cm, construct a line segment such that the length of is equal to the difference between the lengths of and . Verify by measurement.
The steps of construction are as follows:
(i) Draw a line ′l′ and take a point X on it.
(ii) Construct such that length = length of = 7.3 cm
(iii) Then cut off = length of = 3.4 cm
(iv) Thus the length of = length of – length of
By measurement we find that length of = 3.9 cm
