# Draw any line segment PQ. Without measuring PQ, construct a copy of PQ

**Solution:**

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

Assume we're given the line segment PQ.

Now, follow these steps

Step 1: Draw a line l and mark point A on it.

Step 2: Using a compass, measure the PQ of a line segment.

Step 3: Now keeping the compass opened the same length.

We keep the pointed end at point A and draw an arc on line l.

So, AB is the required line segment.
