To construct a triangle, "side-side-side" is provided. construction of triangle sss Which of the following is required to construct the specified triangle?

  • a scale and a compass to mark the given sides
  • a scale and a compass to mark the given sides
  • a protractor and compass to mark angles and sides
  • a set-square to mark parallel lines

The answer is "A scale and a compass to mark the given sides"

To construct a triangle `/_\ ABC` with given "side-side-side" `7`cm, `4`cm, and `5`cm`construction of triangle sss  •  Construct a line and mark side `bar(AB)` with a compass measuring `7`cm

 •  measure `bar(AC)` `4`cm in a compass and draw an arc

 •  measure `bar(BC)` `5`cm in a compass and draw an arc

 •  the two arcs cut at point `C`. Connect the points for sides `bar(AC)` and `bar(BC)`

`/_\ ABC` is constructed.

Construction of SSS triangle : construction of triangle sss use compass to measure lengths and mark points at the given three distances.
