Q.5 Given $$\overline{AB}$$ of length 7.3 cm and $$\overline{CD}$$ of length 3.4 cm, construct a line segment $$\overline{XY}$$ such that the length of XY is equal to the difference between the length of $$\overline{AB}$$ and $$\overline{CD}$$ . Verify the measurement.
(i) Construct $$\overline{AB}$$ = 7.3 cm and $$\overline{CD}$$ = 3.4 cm.
(iii) Construct $$\overline{PR}$$ such that $$\overline{PR}$$ = $$\overline{AB}$$ = 7.3 cm.
(IV) Construct $$\overline{RQ}$$ = $$\overline{CD}$$ = 3.4 cm such that PQ = $$\overline{AB}$$ – $$\overline{CD}$$ .
Verification : On measuring, we observe that $$\overline{PQ}$$ = 3.9 cm = 7.3 cm - 3.4 cm. = $$\overline{AB}$$ – $$\overline{CD}$$
Thus, $$\overline{PQ}$$ = $$\overline{AB}$$ – $$\overline{CD}$$.
