CONSTRUCTION OF A CIRCLE

__CONSTRUCTION OF A CIRCLE -__

**To
draw a circle whose radius
is given, we require a ruler and compasses. Given
that the radius is 5 cm, the steps to be followed
are:**

**· Step 1:- Place the pointer of the compass
at the initial point of the ruler (0 cm) and extend the other end of the pencil measuring 5 cm from the initial
point (i.e. 5 cm)**

**· Step 2:- Mark a point O on a piece of paper. This point is supposed to be the center of the circle
that you are about to construct.**

**· Step 3:- Place the pointer
of the compass at point
O.**

**· Step 4:- Turn the compass
slowly through 360 degrees to draw a circle.**

**Make sure that you hold the point of the compass
stiffly on the paper. You are also required to move the compass through
the 360 degrees in one go
for accuracy and neatness.**
