Expert Answer:

1. Draw a line AB = 8 cm.

2. Taking A as a centre and radius more than half of length AB, draw two arcs in upper and lower portion of AB.

3. Taking B as a centre and same radius, draw two arcs which cut the previous arcs at E and F.

4. Join EF which cut AB at C.

5. EF is the required perpendicular bisector of AB.

6. Measuring AC and CB, each is equal to 4 cm.
