Text Solution

To construct:

An isosceles right-angled triangle \(ABC\), where \(m∠ACB = 90^\circ \) and \(AC = 6\,\rm{ cm}.\)

What is known?

Length of side of an isosceles right-angled triangle \(ABC\),\( AC = 6\,\rm{cm}\) and \(∠ACB = 90^\circ \).


Since \(ΔABC\) is an isosceles right-angled triangle, where \(∠ACB = 90^\circ\) and \(AC = 6\,\rm{ cm}\). Therefore, length of the other equal side, we can take is \(BC = 6\,\rm{cm}\). To construct this triangle, follow the steps given below.


Steps of construction

  1. Draw a line segment \(CA\) of length \(6\,\rm{cm}.\)
  2. At point \(C,\) draw \(CX\) perpendicular \(CA.\)
  3. With \(C\) as centre, draw an arc of radius \(6\,\rm{cm}\) which should intersect \(CX\) at point \(B.\)
  4. Join \(A\) and \(B.\)

Triangle \(ABC\) is the required isosceles right-angles triangle.
