#### Question 4:

Construct $\u2206$ ABC, in which BC =5.2 cm, $\angle $ACB = ${45}^{\xb0}$ and perimeter of $\u2206$ ABC is 10 cm.

#### Answer:

Perimeter of △ABC = 10 cm

⇒ AB + BC + AC = 10 cm

⇒ AB + 5.2 + AC = 10 cm

⇒ AB + AC = 4.8 cm

A triangle can be only possible if the sum of the sides of a traingle is greater than the third side.

But here, AB + AC < BC

Hence, the construction of △ABC is not possible.
