##### Construction of a Line Segment of Given Length

(i) By using a ruler

(ii) By using compasses

##### (i) Construction of a Line Segment by Using a Ruler

In order to construct a line segment of given length 5.9 cm (say), we follow the following steps:

Step-1: Mark a point M on the sheet of paper and place the ruler so that zero mark of the ruler coincides with the point.

Step-2: Mark a point N against the mark on the ruler which indicates 5.9 cm.

Step-3: Join points M and N by moving the tip of the pencil against the straight edge of the ruler. The line segment MN so obtained is the required line segment.

##### (ii) Construction of Line Segments by Using Compasses

In order to construct a line segment of given length 5.3 cm (say) using compasses, we follow the following steps:

Step-1: Mark a point O (say) on the piece of paper and draw a line, say l passing through it

Step-2: Place the metal point of the compasses at zero mark on the ruler and open out it such that the pencil point on the mark indicates the length of the line segment (5.3 cm) on the ruler.

Step-3: Keeping the opening of the compasses undisturbed, place it along the line l such that its metal end coincides with the point O.

Step-4: Make a stroke with the pencil end on the line to cut it at M.

To Cut a Line Segment Line Segment from a Given Line Equal to a Given Line Segment

Let PQ be the given line segment and l be a given line. Let A be a point on the line l. In order to cut a line segment equal to PQ from line l, we have to find a point B on line l so that PQ = AB. For this, we follow the following steps:

Step-1: Open out the compasses and adjust so that the metal point is on P and the pencil point is on Q.

Step-2: Transfer the compasses to the line l without disturbing their opening so that the metal point is on A.

Step-3: With the pencil point make a small stroke on the line l to cut it at the point B.

### Class 6 Maths Exercise 14.1 Important Questions

##### What are the two different ways of drawing a line segment?

(i) The two methods are: Construction of a Line Segment Using Ruler.

(ii) Construction of Line segment using ruler and compass.

##### What are the properties of a line segment?

Line segment: A line segment has two end points with a definite length.

##### What is a segment in math?

The part of a line that connects two points. It is the shortest distance between the two points. Adding the word “segment” is important, because a line normally extends in both directions without end. But a line segment has definite end points.
