Learn moreA line segment is bounded by two fixed endpoints. A line segment can be constructed:

- Using ruler alone.
- Using a ruler and a compass.

**Using a ruler alone:**

**Problem:**Construct a line segment of length \(3.5\) \(cm\) using a ruler.

**Step 1:**A ruler is taken, and zero is marked at one end. Let this point be marked as \(A\).

**Step 2:**The other point is marked at the required length, that is, \(3.5\) \(cm\). Let this point be marked as \(B\).

Now, \(AB\) is the required line segment.
