Given : BC = 5 cm, BP = 4 cm and ∠PBC = 45 ̊.

Steps of construction :

1.Construct ΔBCP  with BC = 5 cm, BP = 4 cm and ∠PBC = 45 ̊.

2.Draw perpendiculars BE and CF and B and C respectively.

3.Draw perpendicular from on CF meeting CF  in K.

4.Cut CD from CF, such that  CK = KD.

5. Cut BA from BE,  such that BA =  CD.

6.Join AD.

Hence, ABCD is the required rectangle and AB = 5.7 cm.
