Slide 1 Slide 2 We shall learn how to construct a unique quadrilateral by following methods :-

When four sides and one diagonal are given.

When two diagonals and three sides are given.

When two adjacent sides and three angles are given.

When three sides and two included angles are given.

When other special properties are known.

Slide 3 Constructing a quadrilateral when four sides and one diagonal are given

Example : Construct a quadrilateral PQRS where PQ = 4cm, QR = 6cm, RS= 5cm, PS = 5.5cm and PR = 7cm
