Steps of construction :

(i) Draw a line segment BC = 6 cm.

(ii) At point B, make CBA = 55˚ and   at point C, make an angle BCA = 70˚ with the help of a protractor. Join AB and AC.

(iii) Draw the perpendicular bisectors of sides AB and AC. Let them intersect at O.

(iv) With O as centre and radius OA, draw a circle which passes through the point A, B and C.

This is the required circumcircle of ABC.
