Construction of Triangles
Sketching triangles to be constructed
1. Make a rough drawing before drawing the accurate figure.2. Write all the given data on the figure.3. Then plan construction of the figure according to the given data.
A. SSS-Triangle ConstructionNote:
Before attempting construction of a triangle, check that the sum of anytwo lengths of the triangle is greater than the third side. Otherwise, theconstruction of the triangle is not possible.
Example 1: Construct a triangle ABC in which AB = 6 cm, BC = 3 cm and CA =5 cmSolution:Steps of construction
1. Draw a line segment AB = 6 cm2. With B as centre and radius = 3 cm draw an arc.3. With A as centre and radius = 5 cm, draw an arc cutting the previous arc at C.4. Join A to C and B to C. Then ABC is the required triangle.
 
 Example 2: Construct an equilateral triangle of side 4 cmSolution:Steps of construction
1. Draw a line segment BC = 4 cm2. With B as centre and radius = 4 cm draw an arc3. With C as centre and same radius, draw another arc, meeting the first arc at A.4. Join AB and AC
 
Therefore Triangle ABC 
is the required triangle
Example 3: Construct an isosceles triangle with AB = AC = 4 cm and BC = 3 cm.Solution:Steps of construction
1. Draw a line segment BC = 3 cm2. With B as centre and radius = 4 cm, draw an arc.3. With C as centre and radius = 4 cm drawn another arc, meeting the first arc atA.4. Join AB and AC.
Therefore Triangle ABC 
is the required triangle
B. SAS-Triangle Construction
In this case, two sides and the included angle are given.
Example 1: Construct a triangle ABC in which AB = 7 cm, BC = 3 cm, and
