Steps of construction :

(i) Draw AB = 6 cm and cut arc of 4 cm from A and B these arcs intersect at C join AC and BC.

(ii) Draw the bisector (internal) of ∠C and mark the point P, taking CP = 5 cm.

(iii) Draw a line EF parallel to AB at a distance of 5 cm.

(iv) Take P as centre cut two Points on line EF as PQ and PR are each equal to 5 cm.
