In geometry the term construction is mainly used for drawing different geometrical shapes like circle, triangle, square, rectangle, rhombus, parallelogram, etcaccurately using geometrical equipments including a ruler, pencil, compass and protractor. Each geometric shapes have their own construction steps and properties.
Here are the simple construction steps for drawing parallelogram ABCD.
Given: AB = 8 cm, BC = 9 cm and AC = 10 cm.
Step-1: With the help of a ruler and pencil, draw a straight line measuring AB =8 cm.
Step-2: Keeping C as midpoint, draw an arc BC = 9 cm.
Step-3: Now keeping A as center, draw an arc AC = 10 cm cutting the preceding arc at C.
Step-4: Connect AC and BC.
Step-5: Keeping C as middle and radius equal to 5 cm, draw an arc.
Step-6: With C as middle and radius equal to 10 cm, draw an arc cutting the previous arc at B.
Step-7: Now connect AD and CD.
Step-8: Here is the parallelogram ABCD.

Frequently asked Questions on CBSE Class 9 Maths Notes Chapter 11: Construction
What is an ‘Angle Bisector’?
Angle bisector is the line or line segment that divides the angle into two equal parts.
What is the ‘Base angle theorem’?
The base angles theorem states that if the sides of a triangle are congruent (Isosceles triangle) then the angles opposite these sides are congruent.
What is a ‘Perpendicular theorem’?
A perpendicular bisector is a line that bisects another line segment at a right angle, through the intersection point.
