Q.3 Draw any line segment, say \(\overline {AB} \). Take any point C lying in between A and B. Measure the lengths of AB, BC and AC. Is AB = AC + CB?
[Note: If A, B, C are any three points on a line such AC + CB = AB, then we can be sure that C lies between A and B]


Answer :


There , A, B and C such that C lies between A and B and AB = 9 cm.
AC = 5 cm, CB = 4 cm.
\(\therefore \) AC + CB = 5 cm + 4 cm = 9 cm.
And AB = 9 cm.
Hence, AB = AC + CB Proved.
