Exercise 14.3

Ex 14.3 Class 6 Maths Question 1.
Draw any line segment $\overline { PQ }$. Without measuring $\overline { PQ }$, construct a copy of $\overline { PQ }$.
Solution:
Step I: Draw $\overline { PQ }$of unknown length.
Step II : Draw a line l and mark a point A on it.
Step III: Open the compass equal to PQ.
Step IV : Place the needle of the compass at A and mark a point B on l.
Thus, $\overline { AB }$is a copy of $\overline { PQ }$.

Ex 14.3 Class 6 Maths Question 2.
Given some line segment $\overline { AB }$whose length you do not know, construct $\overline { PQ }$such that the length of $\overline { PQ }$is twice that of $\overline { AB }$.
Solution:
Step I : Draw $\overline { AB }$of any suitable length.
Step II : Place the needle of the compass at A and the other pencil end at B.
Step III : Draw a line l and take a point P on it.
Step IV: With the same opening of the compass, place the needle at P and mark another point Q on l.
Thus $\overline { PQ }$is the required line segment whose length is twice the length of $\overline { AB }$i.e $\overline { PQ }$= $\overline { 2AB }$.
