Expert Answer:

To represent square root of 5.4 geometrically, following steps are to be followed


Step 1: Draw a number line.  Mark O as the zero on the number line.

Step 2: Mark a point A as -5.4 on the number line.

Step 3: Mark a point C as 1 on the number line.

Step 4: Mark a point B as the mid-point of AC.

Step 5: With point B as the centre and radius as AB draw a semicircle.

Step 6: From O draw a perpendicular line to the number line that intersects the previous drawn semi-circle at D. Here OD = square root of 5.4.

Step 7: With O as centre and radius as OD, draw an arc that intersects the number line at point E. Here E is the point on the number line that represents the number square root of 5.
