• # given ab explain how to construct a square with sides of length ab

• To construct a square with sides of length ab, you begin by drawing two lines that intersect each other at 90 degree angles and measure out one side of the square as ab. You then draw another line from the end of the first line that is parallel to the original and measure it out to ab. Finally, draw a line from the end of the second line to the beginning of the first line and measure it out to ab. All four sides of the square should now have the same length of ab.

• To construct a square with sides of length ab, follow these steps: 1. Take a ruler and draw a line of length ab. 2. Mark the midpoint of the line as point M. 3. Draw a straight line from point M at right angles to the original line (AB). This will create two congruent right-angled triangles. 4. Measure the length of the sides of both triangles, they should both measure the same length (ab/2). 5. Place the ruler at one end of the first triangle and draw a second line of length ab/2. 6. Place the ruler at the other end of the second triangle and draw another line of length ab/2. 7. Connect the two lines with one final line. This will form a square with all sides measuring ab.
