Construct a rectangle PQRS in which QR = 3.5 cm and diagonal is 5.5 cm. Write the steps of construction.
In a rectangle both the diagonals are equal, so we have PR = QS=5.5 cm and each angle is 90°. So Q= R =90°.
Steps of construction:
a)Draw QR =3.5cm.
b)Draw XQR =90° and YRQ=90°.
c)With R as centre and radius 5.5cm draw an arc to cut QX at P.
d)With Q as centre and radius 5.5cm, draw an arc to cut RY at S.
PQRS is the required rectangle.
