Another method which we can use is a tracing paper.
We take a tracing paper and measure AB with it.
Then we overlap the tracing paper on CD and see which one is bigger .
So, AB is smaller than CD
What are the drawbacks?
- The length measured depends on our tracing accuracy
- If we want to compare 3 line segments, we have to trace twice and compare.
We have to trace both AB & CD to see which one is bigger
3.We cannot trace lengths all the time , it is very time consuming
