Let’s take an example


Draw a circle of radius 5 cm

Let’s follow these steps


  1. Mark point O as center


       2. Since radius is 5 cm,

   we measure 5 cm using ruler and compass

Drawing a circle if radius is given - Part 2


  1. 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.
    Drawing a circle if radius is given - Part 3

    So, this is the required circle with center O

    and radius OP = 5 cm
