NCERT Solutions For Class 6 Maths Chapter 14 Practical Geometry Ex 14.3
Draw any line segment . Without measuring , construct a copy of .
Step I: Draw of unknown length.
Step II : Draw a line l and mark a point A on it.
Step III: Open the compass equal to PQ.
Step IV : Place the needle of the compass at A and mark a point B on l.
Thus, is a copy of .
Given some line segment whose length you do not know, construct such that the length of is twice that of .
Step I : Draw of any suitable length.
Step II : Place the needle of the compass at A and the other pencil end at B.
Step III : Draw a line l and take a point P on it.
Step IV: With the same opening of the compass, place the needle at P and mark another point Q on l.
Thus is the required line segment whose length is twice the length of i.e = .
