how to constuct an equilateral triangle given its altitude is 4 cm?
Steps for construction an equilateral triangle, when altitude is given :
(1) Draw a line MN
(2) Make a point D on line MN. At D draw an altitude DR.
(3) Cut off DA = 4 cm from DR.
(4) Draw angle DAC = 30 degree, which meets MM at point C.
(5) Mark a point B on MN such that AC = CB
(6) join AB
Hence Triangle ABC is an equilateral triangle.
