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

Question 1.
Draw any line segment $$\overline { PQ }$$. Without measuring $$\overline { PQ }$$ . construct a copy of $$\overline { PQ }$$.
Solution :
Step 1. Given $$\overline { PQ }$$ 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 $$\overline { PQ }$$.
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 $$\overline { AB }$$ is a copy of $$\overline { PQ }$$.

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 1. Given $$\overline { AB }$$ 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 $$\overline { AB }$$.
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 $$\overline { PQ }$$ is twice that of $$\overline { AB }$$.
