**Q.**

A student was given the following details while constructing a triangle ABC:

The length of the base of the triangle BC, one of the base angles say ∠ B and the sum of the other two sides of the triangle (AB+AC)

He went about the construction of this triangle by first drawing the base of the triangle BC. He then drew an angle at the point B equal to the given angle on a ray that he drew. After completing these steps, he got stuck and doesn’t know what to do next. Which of the following steps will he take up next?

Cut a line segment BD equal to (AB+AC) on that same ray

Change the base length to (AB+AC) and then draw one of the base angles at one of the ends of the line segment whose length is equal to (AB+AC)

He knows the perimeter of the triangle, he changes the base length to that of the perimeter of the triangle and then draws one of the base angles at one of the ends of the line segment

**Q.**

Pinku was a hard working student who used to learn without understanding. He was asked to construct a triangle say ABC and was given the base length of the triangle BC, one of the base angles say ∠ B and the sum of the other two sides (AB + AC). He went about constructing the triangle in the following way:

He drew the base BC with the given dimension, drew the ∠ B along the ray BX with the angle known to him already. He then took B as centre and (AB + AC) as radius and cuts an arc on the ray BX intersecting the ray at D.

He then joins D to C. He then draws a perpendicular bisector of the line DC and the perpendicular bisector intersecting on the ray intersects the ray at point A. The teacher then asked him as to why he did what he did, she started from the back and asked him as to how the intersection of the ray and the perpendicular bisector gives A.

Which of the following is the reason for him drawing the perpendicular bisector and intersecting it with the ray?

Since the perpendicular bisector would get AD = AC which is like flipping the point D about the perpendicular bisector and merging it with point C

To get point A is the mid point of the line segment BD

To get △ ABC and △ ADC congruent
