A Triangle given the 3 sides
Task: Construct a triangle ABC having AB = 5 cm, BC = 7 cm and AC = 3.5 cm. Making a Rough Sketch: Draw a rough sketch of the triangle. Label its vertices. A Write the length of each side. 5 cm 3.5 cm B C 7 cm

A Triangle given the 3 sides
Construct line BC = 7 cm long. A C B 7 cm 5 cm 3.5 cm Centre B draw an arc radius 5 cm. Centre C draw an arc radius 3.5 cm. Label the point of intersection of the two arcs A. Join AB, AC. Write down the lengths. A 5 cm 3.5 cm B 7 cm C
