Measuring Line Segments

Chapter 5 Class 6 Understanding Elementary Shapes
Concept wise

Suppose we have two line segments

Which one is bigger?

By seeing, we can see that (CD)  is bigger than (AB)

Let’s take another example

Which one is bigger ?

Some will say (AB) , some will say (CD)

So, it is not obvious whether (AB ) is bigger or (CD)

This is because we see differently and our judgment of length is not accurate.

So, we have to use another method.

Let’s try comparing by tracing paper
