Draw a line segment AB and by ruler and compasses, obtain a line segment of length 34(AB).
Steps of construction:
(i) Draw a line segment AB.
(ii) Draw a ray AX making an acute angle with AB and mark 4 equal parts at A1,A2,A3,A4.
(iii) Join A4B.
(iv) From A3, draw a line parallel to A4B which meets AB at C.
C is the required point and AC = 34(AB).
Define line segment and construct a line segment AB of length 3.9 cm using compasses and ruler. [2 MARKS]
