Construct a parallelogram with AD=4cm, AB=AD+0.3cm and BD =6.8cm. Also, write the steps of construction.
We have AB = 4cm+0.3cm =4.3cm
DC =AB=4.3cm, and BC =AD=4cm
BD = 6.8 cm
Steps of Construction:
a)Draw AB =4.3cm.
b)With A as centre and radius 4cm draw an arc. With B as centre and radius 6.8cm, draw another arc which cuts the previous arc at pt D. Join AD and BD.
c)With D as centre and radius 4.3cm, draw an arc which meets the arc drawn from B with radius 4 cm at point C.
d)Join DC and BC.
ABCD is the required parallelogram.
