Q.7 Draw a right triangle in which the sides (other than hypotenuse) are of lengths 4 cm and 3 cm. Then construct another triangle whose sides are \(\frac{5}{3} \) times the corresponding sides of the given triangle.

Answer :

Steps of Construction:
1. Construct a \(\triangle \)ABC, such that BC = 4 cm, CA = 3 cm and \(\angle \) BCA = 90°
2. Draw a ray BX making an acute angle with BC.
3. Mark five points B1, B2, B3, B4 and B5 on BX, such that BB1 = B1B2 = B2B3 = B3B4 = B4B5.
4. Join B3C.
5. Through B5, draw B5C’ parallel to B3C intersecting BC produced at C’.
6. Through C’, draw C’A’ parallel to CA intersecting AB produced at A’.
Thus, \(\triangle \) A’BC’ is the required right triangle.
