Expert Answer:

Steps of construction;
1. Draw a line segment AB= 5.8cm.
2. With A as centre and radius more than half of AB, draw two arcs above and below AB.
3. With B as centre and same radius, draw two arcs cutting the arcs drawn in step 2 at E and F respectively.
4. Join EF.
EF is the bisector of AB, and M is the point of bisection.
By measurement AM = MB = 2.9cm.
