## How do you draw a line segment length?

Step 1: Take a scale and check for its start point, which is zero. Step 2: Place the scale on the sheet of paper and mark the starting point of the line segment with a dot on the paper. Mark it as A. Step 3: Mark the endpoint of the line segment, that is till the required length, say 4 cm.

## What is the length of each line segment?

Remember that a line segment is the portion of a straight line that directly connects two given points. Unlike a line, it does not extend off to infinity in both directions. To find the length, we just use the distance formula between the two points provided.

**How do you draw a line segment of length 6.3 cm?**

- Draw a line PQ and take a point A outside it. Through A draw a line parallel to PQ using ruler and compass only. Medium.
- Draw a line, say AB take a point C outside it through C, draw a line parallel to AB using ruler and compasses only. Medium.
- Draw a line EF make a point G above EF, pass a line AB such that AB∣∣EF. Easy.

### What is length of segment?

The distance between two points on a line segment is called the length of the segment. We usually use the same symbol for the length of the line segment that we use for the segment itself.

### How do you draw a 5cm line segment?

The steps to draw a line segment of length 5 cm using ruler and compasses are:

- Step 1: Draw a line of any length. Mark a point A on the line, which is the starting point of the line segment.
- Step 2: Using a ruler, place the pointer of the compass 5 cm apart from the pencil’s lead.

**What are the 3 step in constructing a line segment?**

Line Segment Bisector, Right Angle

- Place the compass at one end of line segment.
- Adjust the compass to slightly longer than half the line segment length.
- Draw arcs above and below the line.
- Keeping the same compass width, draw arcs from other end of line.
- Place ruler where the arcs cross, and draw the line segment.

## How to draw line segment of length 7.6 cm?

Ex 11.1, 1 – Draw a line segment of length 7.6 cm and divide in ratio Ex 11.1, 1 Draw a line segment length 7.6 cm and divide it in the ratio 5 : 8. Measure the two parts. Give the justification of the construction. Steps of construction: Draw line segment AB of length 7.6 cm Draw any ray AX, making an acute angle with AB.

## How to draw a line segment in ex 11.2?

Ex 11.2, 5 Draw a line segment AB of length 8 cm. Taking A as centre, draw a circle of radius 4 cm and taking B as centre, draw another circle of radius 3 cm. Construct tangents to each circle from the centre of the other circle.

**Where does line segment AF start and end?**

Point e is just about at the 2 ¾ inch line on the ruler, which is the closest quarter inch. Line segment af begins at the first line, passes the number 3, and ends at the half-inch line. So that line segment is 3½ inches long. Look at line segment xy.

### How to draw tangents to the right circle?

To draw tangents to the right circle, we need to draw perpendicular bisector of line AB 4. Make perpendicular bisector of AB Let M be the midpoint of AB.
