2. Construct a right-angled triangle whose hypotenuse is 6 cm long and one of the legs is 4 cm long.
Let the ΔABC is a right-angled triangle at ∠B = 90o
AC is hypotenuse = 6 cm
BC = 4 cm
According to the question we have to construct the right-angled triangle.
Step 1. Draw a line segment BC = 4 cm.
Step 2. Draw a ray BX, at point B to make an angle of 90o i.e. ∠XBC = 90o.
Step 3. Now, C as a center with a radius of 6 cm, draw an arc that cuts the ray BX at A.
Step 4. Join AC.
Hence, ΔABC is the required right-angled triangle.
