Answer:

In a rectangle both the diagonals are equal, so we have LN = MO = 8.5 cm and each angle is 90°. So  M = N = 90°.

 

 

 

 

Steps of construction:

a)Draw MN = 5.5cm.

b)Draw XMN = 90° and YNM = 90°. 

c)With N as centre and radius 8.5cm draw an arc to cut MX at L.

d)With M as centre and radius 8.5cm, draw an arc to cut NY at O.

e)Join LO.

LMNO is the required rectangle.
