# Construct a line segment of length 5.6 cm using ruler and compasses

**Solution:**

With the help of a ruler and a compass, we can draw a line segment of length 5.6 cm by following steps:

Steps of construction:

Step 1: Draw a line l of suitable length and mark a point A on this line l.

Step 2: On the zero points of the ruler, we place the compasses. Now extend the compasses up to 5.6 cm and draw an arc to cut line l at B.

Step 3: Join points A and B.

Thus, AB is the required line segment of length 5.6 cm.
