Measurements of two sides and three angles

What is unknown?

Construction of a Quadrilateral


As you are aware, we need five measurements to draw a quadrilateral .

The measurements of two adjacent sides and three angles 


Let us draw a rough diagram of the quadrilateral

Let us construct the quadrilateral

Step 1: Draw a line segment \(MO=6 \,\rm{cm}.\)

Step 2: With \(M\) as center draw angle of measure \(60^\circ.\)

Step 3: Draw \( 105^\circ\) from \(O.\)

Step 4: With \(O\) as center and radius \(4.5\,\rm{cm}\) draw an arc cutting the ray from \(O\) at \(R.\) \(OR = 4.5\,\rm{cm}\)

Step 5: Construct an angle of \(105^{\circ}\) from \(R\) as above. The ray from \(R\) meets the ray from \(M\) at a point. Mark the intersection point as \(E.\)

Step 6: \(MORE\)  is the required quadrilateral.
