Class 6 Maths Chapter 14 Extra Questions Question 1.
If AB = 3.6 and CD = 1.6 cm, construct a line segment equal to $$\overline { AB }$$ + $$\overline { CD }$$ and measure the total length.

Solution:
Step I: Draw a ray OX.
Step II : With centre 0 and radius equal to the length of AB (3.6 cm) mark a point P on the ray.

Step III: With centre P and radius equal to the length of CD (1.6 cm) mark another point Q on the ray.
Thus OQ is the required segment such that OQ = 3.6 cm + 1.6 cm = 5.2 cm.

Question 2.
Construct a perpendicular to a given line segment at point on it.
Solution:
Step IDraw a line $$\overleftrightarrow { PQ }$$ and take any point A on it.

Step II : With centre A draw an arc which meets PQ at C and D.
Step III : Join AB and produce.
Step IV: With centres C and D and radius equal to half of the length of the previous arc, draw two arcs which meets each other at B.
Thus AB is the required perpendicular to $$\overleftrightarrow { PQ }$$.

Question 3.
Construct an angle of 60Â° and bisect it.
Solution:
Step I: Draw a line segment $$\overline { AB }$$.

Step II: With centre B and proper radius, draw an arc which meets AB at C.
Step III : With C as centre and the same radius as in step II, draw an arc cutting the previous arc at D.
Step IV : Join B to D and produce.
Step V : Draw the bisector BE of âˆ ABD.
Thus BE is the required bisector of âˆ ABD.

Question 4.
Draw an angle of 120Â° and hence construct an angle of 105Â°.
Solution:
Step I : Draw a line segment $$\overline { OA }$$.

Step II : With centre O and proper radius, draw an arc which meets OA at C.
Step III : With centre C and radius same, mark D and E on the previous arc.
Step IV : Join O to E and produce.
Step V : âˆ EOA is the required angle of 120Â°.
Step VI : Construct an angle of 90Â° which meets the previous arc at F.
Step VII : With centre E and F and proper radius, draw two arcs which meet each other at G.
Step VIII : Join OG and produce.
Thus âˆ GOA is the required angle of 105Â°.

Question 5.
Using compasses and ruler, draw an angle of
75Â° and hence construct an angle of 37 $$\frac { { 1 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$.
Solution:
Step I: Draw a line segment OA.
Step II : Construct âˆ BOA = 90Â° and âˆ EOA = 60Â°
Step III : Draw OC as the bisector of âˆ BOE , which equal to

Step IV : Draw the bisector OD of âˆ COA.

Thus âˆ DOA is the required angle of 37 $$\frac { { 1 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$ .

Question 6.
Draw âˆ†ABC. Draw perpendiculars from A, B and C respectively on the sides BC, CA and AB. Are there perpendicular concurrent? (passing through the same points).
Solution:
Step I: Draw any âˆ†ABC.
Step II : Draw the perpendicular AD from A to BC.

Step III : Draw the perpendicular BE from B to AC.
Step IV : Draw the perpendicular CF from C to AB.
We observe that the perpendiculars AD, BE and CF intersect each other at P.
Thus, P is the point of intersection of the three perpendiculars.
