Let’s take an example
Draw a circle of radius 5 cm
Let’s follow these steps
- Mark point O as center
2. Since radius is 5 cm,
we measure 5 cm using ruler and compass
Now keeping compass opened the same length.
We keep pointed end at the center,
and draw a circle using the pencil end of the compass.
So, this is the required circle with center O
and radius OP = 5 cm
