Construct a parallelogram whose diagonal is 5.4 cm and 6.2 and an angle between them is 70.
Answer: The construction of the parallelogram is given below.
Let's follow the steps of construction.
In a parallelogram, the diagonals bisect each other.
The following are the steps of construction to draw a parallelogram ABCD with the given parameters:
- Draw AC = 5.4 cm.
- Construct the perpendicular bisector of AC, i.e., Bisect AC at O.
- Draw ∠COX = 70° and produce XO to Y.
- With O as the center cut an arc OB = 3.1 cm (since 1/2 of the diagonal BD = 1/2 × 6.2 =1.3) and OD = 1/2 × 6.2 =3.1 cm as shown.
- Join AB, BC, CD, and DA.
