Expert Answer:



1. Draw a line XY of any length.

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

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

4. Join EF.

5. Thus EF is the required perpendicular bisector of XY.
