We will discuss here about constructing a line segment. We know how to draw a line segment of a certain length. Suppose we want to draw a line segment of 4.5 cm length.

We follow the following steps as given below:

**Step I:** We place a scale on a paper sheet as shown below.

**Step II:** We place the sharp point of a pencil on the point
which coincides with 0 on the scale and name it as A.

**Step III:** We mark another point B which coincides with the
fifth millimetre division after the 4th centimetre. (1 small division
= 1 mm.)

**Step IV:** We join both points A and B by drawing a line
segment with a fine pointed pencil. The line segment AB is of 4.5 cm length.
