Draw a circle of radius 4 cm. Draw any two of its chords. Construct the perpendicular bisectors of these chords. Where do they meet?

Solution:

Following are the steps to draw the perpendicular bisector of two chords of a circle.

Step 1: Draw a circle of radius 4 cm with center O.

Step 2: Draw any two chords that meet the circle at point PQ and XY

Step 3: Taking P and Q as the center, mark arcs that intersect each other at points A and B.

Step 4: Join AB to construct a perpendicular bisector of the chord PQ.

Step 5:Taking X and Y as the center, mark arcs that intersect each other at points C and D.

Step 6: Join CD to construct a perpendicular bisector of XY.

Thus, we see that the two perpendicular bisectors AB and DC of the chords PQ and XY respectively meet at the center O.
