### Ex 14.3 Class 6 Maths Question 1.

Draw any line segment PQ. Without measuring PQ, construct a copy of PQ.

Solution:
Step 1: Draw a line segment PQ of any unknown length.
Step 2: Draw a line l and mark a point A on it.
Step 3: Place the needle of the compass at P and open the other pencil end till Q.
Step 4: Now, with the same opening of the compass, place the needle of the compass at A and mark a point B on l.
Thus, AB is a copy of PQ.

### Ex 14.3 Class 6 Maths Question 2.

Given some line segment AB, whose length you do not know, construct PQ such that the length of PQ is twice that of AB.

Solution:
Step 1: Draw AB of any suitable length.
Step 2: Place the needle of the compass at A and the other pencil end at B.
Step 3: Draw a line I and take a point P on it.
Step 4: With the same opening of the compass, place the needle of the compass at P and mark a point R on l. Again, place the needle of the compass at R and mark another point Q as shown in the figure.
Thus, PQ is the required line segment whose length is twice the length AB, i.e., PQ = 2AB.
