Draw a line segment of length 9.5 cm and construct its perpendicular bisector.
The below given steps will be followed to construct a line segment of length 9.5 cm and its perpendicular bisector.
(1) Draw a line segment of 9.5 cm.
(2) Taking P as centre, draw a circle by using compasses. The radius of circle should be more than half the length of .
(3) With the same radius as before, draw another circle using compasses while taking point Q as centre. Let it cut the previous circle at R and S.
(4) Join RS. is the axis of symmetry i.e., the perpendicular bisector of line .
