# Construct an equilateral triangle of side $5.5\ cm$.

**Given: **An equilateral triangle of side $5.5\ cm$.

**To do: **To construct an equilateral triangle of side $5.5\ cm$.

**Steps of construction: **

- Draw a line segment $BC$ of length $5.5\ cm$.
- Cut an arc of radius $5\ cm$ from point $B$ and an arc of $5.5\ cm$ from point $C$.
- Name the point of intersection of arcs as point $A$.
- Now, join $AC$ and $BC$.

$\Delta ABC$ is the required triangle.
