Construction of a line parallel to a
given line , through a point not on
the line.
Step 1 : Take a line ‘l’ and a point ‘A’
not on ‘l’
.A

Step 2: Take any point B on ‘l’ and join
B to A .

Step 3 : With B as centre and a
convenient radius , draw an arc cutting l
at C and BA at D.

Step 4 : Now with A as centre and the same
radius as in Step 3,draw an arc EF cutting AB at
G. Place the pointed tip of the compass at C and
adjust the opening so that the pencil tip is at D

Construction Of Triangles
1.Construction of a triangle when the
measurements of all the three sides are given.
( SSS Criterion )
Example : Construct a triangle ABC , given that
AB = 5 cm , BC = 6 cm and AC = 7 cm
Solution
Step 1 : First , we draw a rough sketch
with given measures.
A
B
6 cm
C
Step 2 : Draw a line segment BC of
length 6 cm .
B
6 cm
C
Step 3 : From point B , point A is at
a distance of 5 cm . So , with B as
centre , draw an arc of radius 5 cm.
B
6 cm
C
Step 4 : From point C , point A is at
a distance of 7 cm . So , with C as
centre , draw an arc of radius 7 cm.
B
6 cm
C
Step 5 : Mark the point of intersection
of arcs as A . Join AB and AC .Δ ABC is
the required triangle.

B
6 cm
C
2.Construction of a triangle when the lengths
of two sides and the measurement of angle
between them are given.
( SAS Criterion )
Example : Construct a triangle PQR , given that
PQ = 3 cm , QR = 5.5 cm and ˂ PQR = 60⁰
Solution
Step 1 : First , we draw a rough sketch
with given measures.
P
60⁰
Q
5.5 cm
R
Step 2 : Draw a line segment QR of
length 5.5 cm .
Q

R
Step 3 : AT point Q , Draw QX
making 60⁰ with QR.
X

R
Step 4 : With Q as centre draw an
arc of radius 3 cm. IT cuts QX at
point P.

Step 5 : Join PR .ΔPQR is the required
triangle.

3.Construction of a triangle when the
measures of two of its angles and the length
of side between them is given.
( ASA Criterion )
Example : Construct a triangle PQR , given that
XY = 6 cm ,m YXZ = 30⁰ and m XYZ = 100⁰
Solution
Step 1 : First , we draw a rough sketch
with given measures.Z

Step 2 : Draw a line segment XY of
length 6 cm .
X

Y
Step 3 : AT point X , Draw XP making
30⁰ with XY and at point Y draw YQ
making an angle 100⁰ with YX.

Step 4 : Z has to lie on both the rays XP and YQ.
So the point of Intersection of these two rays is
Z. Δ XYZ is the required triangle.

4.Construction of a Right -angled triangle
when the length of its one leg and its
hypotenuse are given.
( RHS Criterion )
Example : Construct a triangle LMN , right –
angled at M , given that LN = 5 cm and MN = 3
cm.
Solution
Step 1 : First , we draw a rough sketch
with given measures.
