## NCERT Solutions for Class 10 Maths Constructions

**n each of the following, give the justification of the construction also:**

**1. Draw a line segment of length 7.6 cm and divide it in the ratio 5: 8. Measure the two parts.**

**Ans. Given**: A line segment of length 7.6 cm.

**To construct**: To divide it in the ration 5: 8 and to measure the two parts.

**Steps of construction**:

**(a) **From any ray AX, making an acute angle with AB.

**(b) **Locate 13 (=5 + 8) points on AX such that.

**(c) **Join.

**(d) **Through the point, draw a line parallel to intersecting AB at the point C.

Then, AC: CB = 5: 8

On measurement, AC = 3.1 cm, CB = 4.5 cm

**Justification**:

[By construction]

[By Basic Proportionality Theorem]

But [By construction]

Therefore,

AC: CB = 5: 8

**Steps of construction**:

**(a) **Draw a triangle ABC of sides 4 cm, 5 cm and 6 cm.

**(b) **From any ray BX, making an acute angle with BC on the side opposite to the vertex A.

**(c) **Locate 3 points on BX such that.

**(d) **Join and draw a line through the point, draw a line parallel to intersecting BC at the point C’.

**(e) **Draw a line through C’ parallel to the line CA to intersect BA at A’.

Then, A’BC’ is the required triangle.

**Justification**:

[By construction]

[By Basic Proportionality Theorem]

But [By construction]

Therefore,

**(b) **From any ray BX, making an acute angle with BC on the side opposite to the vertex A.

**(c) **Locate 7 points on BX such that.

**(d) **Join and draw a line through the point, draw a line parallel to intersecting BC at the point C’.

**(e) **Draw a line through C’ parallel to the line CA to intersect BA at A’.

Then, A’BC’ is the required triangle.

**Justification**:

**(b) **Draw perpendicular bisector of BC. Let it meets BC at D.

**(c) **Mark a point A on the perpendicular bisector such that AD = 4 cm.

**(d) **Join AB and AC. Thus ABC is the required isosceles triangle.

**(e) **From any ray BX, making an acute angle with BC on the side opposite to the vertex A.

**(f) **Locate 3 points on BX such that.

**(g) ** Join and draw a line through the point, draw a line parallel to intersecting BC at the point C’.

**(h) **Draw a line through C’ parallel to the line CA to intersect BA at A’.

Then, A’BC’ is the required triangle.

**Justification**:
