Expert Answer:

To construct a circle circumscribing the given triangle

Steps of construction:

(i) Draw line BC = 6 cm

(ii) At B, draw a ray making an angle of 45o with BC.

(iii) At C, draw a ray making an angle of 60o with BC.

(iv) Let the two rays meet at point A. We get the triangle ABC.

(v) Draw perpendicular bisectors of BC and AC, which meet at O.

(vi) With O as centre and radius equal to the distance between O and the vertex of the triangle, draw a circle to pass through all the three vertices of the triangle.

(vii) The drawn circle is the required circumcircle.
