## NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 14 Practical Geometry Ex 14.3

Question 1.
Draw any line segment PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯. Without measuring PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ . construct a copy of PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯.
Solution :
Step 1. Given PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ whose length is not known.
Step 2. Fix the compasses pointer on P and the pencil end on Q. The opening of the instrument now
gives the length of PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯.
Step 3. Draw any line l. Choose a point A on /. Without changing the compasses setting, place the pointer on A.
Step 4. Swing an arc that cuts l at a point, say, B. Now AB¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ is a copy of PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯.

Question 2.
Given some line segment AB¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯, whose length you do not know, construct PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ such that the length of PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ is twice that of AB¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯.
Solution :
Step 1. Given AB¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ whose length is not known.
Step 2. Fix the compasses pointer on A and the pencil end on B. The opening of the instrument now gives the length of AB¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯.
Step 3. Draw any line l. Choose a point P on l. Without changing the compasses setting, place the pointer on P.
Step 4. Strike an arc that cuts l at a point, say, X.
Step 5. Now fix the compasses pointer on X. Strike an arc away from P that cuts l at a point, say, Q. Now, the length of PQ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ is twice that of AB¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯.
